Speaking to reporters, Kejriwal said, "I voted along with my family. I appeal to all Delhiites to exercise their right to vote. I would especially like to appeal to women to come in large numbers and vote." He also expressed confidence for his party's return to power. "I am very certain that people of Delhi will vote over the work done and soon we AAP will win for the third time."

AAP's previous record

In its electoral debut, AAP managed to be the second-largest party (winning 28 seats) in the 2013 Assembly election but fell short of a majority. Kejriwal somehow managed to seek "unconditional" support from Congress. However, after 49 days, he resigned as the CM following the failure of the introduction of Delhi's Jan Lokpal Bill in the assembly in 2014. In 2015, the AAP returned with a spectacular victory, winning 67 of the 70 seats.
