Delhi Election Results 2015 Summary

Delhi's historical folklore was already enriched with a vast number of tales and anecdotes, but on 10 February 2015, another glorious chapter was added to it. In the Delhi assembly elections of 2015, the AAP cavalry came bludgeoning and trampled everything that came its way. The BJP was at the receiving end this time. The 49 day rule of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal proved more than enough to enable them to win comfortably against an ever strengthening BJP. The AAP has got the number, better than it ever imagined. It now has to deliver on the promises.

Delhi Assembly Elections 2015

Delhi is all set for fresh elections in February 2015. All the major political parties are gearing up for the elections and have formed strategies for effective campaigning in the city. The elections are going to be largely an AAP versus BJP affair.

The Congress party, that governed Delhi for three consecutive terms from 1998 to 2013, seems a mere shadow of its past. Political experts are of the view that the BJP may be able to capitalise on the 'Modi Wave' once again and may emerge as the single largest party with clear majority this time around. While AAP is going to give tough competition to the BJP, it might not be able to reach the clear majority mark. But yet the possibility of a fractured mandate can not be denied.

Delhi seems concerned about the same lot of grim issues that have continued to hurt its status as the national capital for long. Poor water supply and power outages, weak infrastructure, corruption, crime against women, problem of law and order, unemployment and pollution are still the issues that are going to be at the core of the assembly elections.

About Delhi Assembly Elections

The first elections for the Delhi Legislative Assembly were held in 1993 in which Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerged victorious. The last assembly elections were held in Delhi in 2013 in which Aam Aadmi Party won as many as 28 seats and formed its government with outside support of Indian National Congress (INC). In the 2013 Assembly elections, there were 11,753 polling stations with 11.9 million eligible voters out of which 6.6 million were men and 5.3 million were women including 405,000 first time voters. Presently, Delhi is under President's rule ever since former chief minister Arvind Kejriwal resigned in February 2014.

After its landslide victory in General Elections 2014, the BJP is confident of getting a clear majority in the state Assembly elections and is looking forward to fresh polls in the national capital. The Congress will try its best to regain its lost ground. On the other hand, AAP will have to start from scratch. It has to plan a new strategy to win back the confidence of voters in Delhi.

Delhi Election History

Delhi, the national capital of India, is situated on the west bank of the river Yamuna. Delhi shares its borders with Uttar Pradesh to the east, and with Haryana to the north, west and south. It is a metropolitan region and is spread over 1,484 sq km. Though constitutionally Delhi is a union territory, it is regarded as a state in India. It has its own judiciary (Delhi High Court), legislature (the Legislative Assembly) and executive council of Ministers with the Chief Minister as its head.

New Delhi, the capital of India as well as part of the Union Territory of Delhi, houses the major administrative and political buildings and institutions namely Lok Sabha or (The House of People), Rajya Sabha (The Council of States), Rashtrapati Bhavan (the Official Residence of the President of India) and the Supreme Court of India. There are national as well as regional political parties in Delhi.

In the past few years, a number of parties have formed coalitions in order to govern Delhi. The BJP governed Delhi from 1993, with Madan Lal Khurana as the Chief Minister. See Delhi Assembly Election 2013 Results

Administrative structure

The National Capital Territory of Delhi consists of 70 assembly constituencies and seven parliamentary constituencies. Delhi has its own Lieutenant Governor, council of ministers and Chief Minister. The Lieutenant Governor (just like the Governor in other states) is the nominal head of the State and is appointed by the President of India. The judiciary consists of the Delhi High Court and the two lower courts namely the Small Causes Court for civil cases and the Sessions Court for criminal cases. The Supreme Court of India is also located here. Delhi has three local municipal corporations namely, Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) and Delhi Cantonment Board.

Issues of the state

Villages: Though regarded as urban villages, they lack basic infrastructure. Some villages do not have even basic facilities such as water supply, hospitals and proper sanitation. Transport and frequent power failures are other areas of concern that need attention.
Law & Order: Just like the problem of corruption, the issue of law and order in Delhi requires lot of attention.
Water: Delhi continues to face acute water crisis, a condition which may only get worse in future.

Electricity and women’s safety have been the main focus of all the parties during the elections.

Delhi Assembly Elections 2013

The 2013 Assembly elections witnessed the remarkable success of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), a new political party. The Congress which was in power in the capital for the last 15 years faced a major defeat winning only 8 out of the 70 Assembly constituencies. BJP won the most with 31 seats, falling short by just 4 seats to reach the half-way mark. The nascent AAP 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 took most political rivals by surprise, who with support from the Congress, went on to form the government. But Arvind Kejriwal's resignation from the Chief Minister’s post led to President's rule in the state. The Delhi Assembly has been kept in suspended animation.
