BJP is trying to make advances in the upcoming Assembly elections after the 2015 debacle where it won only 3 seats. During the 2015 elections, AAP won 67 seats out of the 70-seat Assembly. It is said that the contest will be between BJP and AAP in the election as Congress is not considered in the fray. In preparation for its 1.47 crore voters of which 81.05 lakh are male voters and 66.8 lakh female voters, the Election Commission of India (EC) has set up 13,000 polling stations and deployed 90,000 officials to ensure smooth polling.
Delhi will go to polls on February 8 to elect its 70 members Legislative assembly and the results will be declared on February 11 2020. The term of the current assembly elected in 2015 will expire on 22 February 2020.
