As per the Election Commission's official update, counting for 70 seats has been done with the ruling Aam Aadmi Party winning 44 seats and leading on 18 seats, whereas the BJP has won five seats and is leading on three seats. The AAP in 2015 registered a landslide victory by winning 67 out of the 70 seats and Congress drew blank, with BJP bagging only three seats.
