Delhi Assembly Elections 2013



Results for the 2013 Delhi Assembly polls were announced on Sunday, December 8. The Congress which was in power in the capital for the last fifteen years faced a major defeat winning only 8 out of the 70 Assembly constituencies in Delhi. BJP won 32 seats, falling short by 3 seats to reach the half-way mark. A significant entry into the political game was made by nascent Aam Aadmi Party, which debuted in the Delhi elections winning as many as 28 seats. Other political parties bagged 2 seats. AAP President Arvind Kejriwal defeated Sheila Dikshit in the New Delhi constituency with a huge margin of over 25,000 votes. AAP’s success has taken most political rivals by surprise. Harsh Vardhan, BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate won in the Krishna Nagar constituency. Since no single political party managed to gain the magic number of winning 36 constituencies in order to form the Delhi government, it has resulted in a hung assembly. According to AAP press statements, it will not provide alliance to the BJP in Delhi, thereby declining possibilities of a coalition government in the capital.
