The Aam Aadmi Party emerged victorious in the MCD Election results declared today, drawing the curtains on the 15-year reign of the Bharatiya Janata Party in the civic body. The people’s verdict has put the AAP firmly in control in the capital where it has promised to deliver on cleanliness and governance, among others.

Far from the exit poll predictions, the day began with a rollercoaster ride as the trends kept switching from BJP to AAP’s favour and vice versa. However, as the day progressed and the trends became clearer, the AAP emerged comfortably on top. While there are at least 10 seats where the margins as thin as 200 votes, there were also several seats where the difference was sizable.
