No clear majority in Delhi
The poll predictions of a hung assembly have come true, although the Congress is nowhere in the race. The AAP has surprised everyone with 28 seats, and has even swept off Sheila Dikhit. More importantly, the party has stopped the BJP in its tracks, forcing it at 32 seats, 4 short of the required majority. The Congress scored only eight seats, failing to reach even the double digits. The mighty onion has proved itself right once more.
So has the Aam Aadmi Party, which has demonstrated beyond doubt that its brand of politics is sustainable.
Kejriwal defeats Sheila Dikshit, writes history
Most would not even considered it. And indeed, many thought it was pure arrogance on part of Arvind Kejriwal to challenge the three-time CM Sheila Dikshit in a one on one fight. But he did, and against all odds, has won. More interestingly, the victory is not only symbolic, but a thumping one. While Kejriwal was trailing in the early-morning counting, by now he has defeated Dikshit by an astounding 22,000 votes. In fact, Kejriwal won more votes that all the candidates of the New Delhi constituency combined.
Earlier in the day, Sheila Dikshit had sent her resignation to the Lt. Governor and admitted defeat. A historic moment indeed!
Sheila Dikshit resigns as the chief minister of Delhi
It seems that the incumbent CM doesn't need to wait for the full results of Delhi to admit defeat. Sheila Dikshit, who has ruled the capital city for fifteen long years, sent her resignation to the Lt. Governor today. The party was spoiled by the BJP as much as by the newcomer Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). What's even more ignominious for Sheila Dikshit is that she is also losing from her home constituency, New Delhi. With Kejriwal leading by over 6,000 votes, there is zero practical chance for Dikshit.
BJP likely to attain majority in Delhi
Although final results for Delhi are still not declared, the counting process is beginning to show a definite mood. The BJP is currently leading on 37 seats, and should it be able to convert these, will be forming the government in Delhi with ample majority. But perhaps the biggest surprise has been the debutant Aam Aadmi Party, which is leading on 22 seats so far. While the Congress would not have had high hopes, it surely wasn't expecting a performance so dismal.
It appears that Dr. Harshvardhan, the 'clean and honest' politician has managed to pull in enough voters to get his party a majority. At the same time, Modi's presence is likely to have had worked in the party's favor, as he did tour Delhi as part of his 2014 campaign.
No party's majority likely in Delhi assembly election 2013
It's the day of results. All the talk and tall claims made by political parties mean very little as the counting of votes is in progress. While as of now the BJP is leading on 31 seats, the AAP has emerged as the second-largest party and is leading on 22. The Congress remains the biggest loser, managing only 10 seats. All in all, it looks very likely that Delhi is headed for a hung assembly. A historic day for the AAP, and an added burden for the Election Commission.
What does this signify? Well, first and foremost, it's a certainty that the Congress can bid goodbye to any ideas of holding on to Delhi. Secondly, the AAP has managed to silence its critics who said that the party is not a key player in this election. And thirdly, the voter base of the BJP looks largely intact. It can also be argued that the presence of an 'honest' CM candidate, Dr. Harshvardhan, has helped the BJP, and that the prevailing pro-Modi mood as helped, even if a little.
A much clearer picture will emerge as results are declared very soon, but until then the trends seems to point to a hung assembly.
The Delhi election results 2013 for its 70-seat state assembly will be out in a few hours as the counting of votes has already begun. Without doubt, this time it will be toughest election to call, and it won't be surprising to discover that the exit polls were embarrassingly off the mark. Along with the regular contenders, the INC and the BJP, the Delhi elections have seen the entrance of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) into the fray this time.
One of the favourites to win and become the chief minister is Arvind Kejriwal, leader of AAP. Shiela Dikshit, the current and three-time Chief Minister is likely to be impacted by the anti-incumbency factor, while Dr. Harshavardhan, the BJP's chief ministerial candidate is likely to put up a fight, armed with his clean and non-controversial image. This has led many to predict a hung assembly.
The state assembly election in Delhi was held on December 4, 2013 witnessed 66.5% polling at 11,594 election booths, compared with 57.58% in 2008 assembly elections.
As per an ORG survey for Headlines Today, it has been estimated that the BJP would grab 41 seats out of the total 70 seats in Delhi.
The Most Unpredictable Election in Delhi Ever
From being a two-sided contest between the arch-rivals, the BJP and the Congress, the 2013 assembly election of Delhi has gone on to become one of the most exciting and chaotic triangular contest ever. With the entry of the Aam Aadmi Party, Arvind Kejriwal has managed to convert himself from an activist to a hugely popular politician in virtually no time.
With this has come the raging uncertainty that has gripped every exit poll and political analyst alike. The more one attempts to learn, the more the confusion grows. Different exit polls are predicting wildly differing results, with most predicting a hung assembly. The respective parties, of course, are expressing utmost confidence in their chances.
However, the most interesting aspect is that a political alliance is highly unlikely. The AAP has already refused any alliance with anyone, and the BJP and the Congress are hardly expected to get together.
In light of all this, it will be with unprecedented anticipation that the results will be watched on 8 December. We bring to you live updates, interesting analysis, and a deeper look into what the big picture is.
In the 2013 assembly polls, Delhi proved wrong the age-old dictum that "people in cities do not vote". This election witnessed a record turnout of 66%, which is 8% up from the last elections. According to analysts, two major factors this time where the widespread appeal of the Aam Aadmi Party, and the historically high dissatisfaction with the Congress.
Seemapuri in northeast Delhi was the constituency with the highest turnout, of over 72%. This was 10% higher than from the last elections. The New Delhi constituency, from where Arvind Kejriwal challenged Sheila Dikshit, also saw 66% turnout, much higher than the last year's 56%.
Kalkaji, RK Puram, etc., also witnessed record turnout, shedding the noting that the affluent class is indifferent to the electoral process.
Despite the record turnout, exit polls are expecting a hung house in Delhi. While as expected, the Congress remains the biggest loser, none of the other parties are expected to emerge with a clear majority. While the BJP is expected to bag 29 seats, the Congress and the AAP will take about 15-20 seats each.
Should such a verdict emerge, the capital city will be facing a distasteful task of re-election sometime in the next six months.
Major parties and their predictions
Three major player in the Delhi's 2013 election are the arch-rivals BJP and Congress, and the surprise entry, the Aam Aadmi Party. Here's what the parties are saying:
- Aam Aadmi Party: The AAP has been predicting a sweeping win for itself from the very start. It hasn't budged from its position a bit, maintaining that the party will win 38-50 seats out of the 70.
- BJP: The BJP is confident that the anti-Congress mood will play in its favour hugely. The party is too expecting a landslide victory, and refuses to acknowledge the presence of the AAP in the election.
- Congress: Stung by the AAP and the public ire alike, the Congress is playing it safe and refraining from making tall claims. Sheila Dikshit says that the Congress will undoubtedly win, though she agrees that the AAP has incredible support.
Many believe that this election result will be make or break for the AAP, which rose to prominence on its 'clean' image and radical poll agenda. Even a hung assembly will do more harm than good for the AAP party, analysts believe, as the people will next vote not for radical suggestions but for a stable government, a clear signal in favour of the BJP. Regardless of what the public's verdict is in Delhi, the AAP has vowed to take its fight to the national level, although Kejriwal maintains that the Delhi election will be 'critical' to the future of the party.
What if no party gets majority in Delhi?
Judging by the many exit polls, Delhi is likely to witness a hung assembly. Should that happen, there remain two courses of action. The first is that two of the parties will have to come together to form an alliance. But that seems close to impossible as a BJP-Congress alliance will be like water and oil mixing together, whereas the AAP has already dismissed any possibility of collusion.
In case one of the parties emerges close to the 35-seat mark, we might see some political manoeuvring aimed at ensnaring some of the MLAs from other parties. Should that also fail, there will be no choice but to impose President's Rule in Delhi. After this, the city will have to conduct another election within six months.
Will the Congress lose Delhi?
Congress has ruled the turf in Delhi for fifteen long years. Can it win yet again? Judging by the political mood in the capital, this seems like an uphill task. First off, the AAP has make deep inroads into the loyalty of the Delhi electorate, sawing off votes from both the Congress and the BJP. Further, the anti-Congress mood across the nation will bear heavily on the Delhi election, and if the record turnout is anything to go by, voters are very angry and will do everything their power to sideline the Congress.
