Delhi election 2020: Voting for the Delhi Assembly election 2020 will begin from 7 am to 6 pm, tomorrow, February 08, 2020. Voters from the 70 constituencies of the national capital will exercise franchise and elect representatives from 672 candidates in the Delhi Assembly election 2020. This state election will see a three-cornered contest between Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress.
More than 14.7 million voters -- around 8.1 million males, 6.7 million females, 11,608 service voters, 869 third gender voters, and 2,04,830 senior citizens, aged 80 and above -- will exercise their voting right, says Ranbir Singh, Chief Electoral Officer, New Delhi.
The BJP is contesting along with its allies Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) and Janata Dal-United (JDU), while Congress is fighting with its ally Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Delhi Assembly elections. Delhi's ruling party AAP's electoral campaign is led by CM Arvind Kejriwal from New Delhi and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia from Patparganj.
In the last Assembly election, the Congress party failed to open its account and the BJP managed to win just three seats, while AAP swept the opposition and gained victory on 67 seats.
Polling will take place in a single phase and results for voting will be announced on February 11. Candidates will be contesting for 58 general and 12 minority (Scheduled Castes) seats in Delhi Assembly.
