MCD Election 2022: Powers And Functions Of Municipal Corporation | What is the importance of municipality

MCD Elections Result 2022: Elections for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) were held on December 4, and the results will be tallied on December 7. The MCD was previously divided into 3 different corporations, namely New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), East Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), and East Delhi Municipal Corporation. This year, however, the MCD has been reinstated into one unified body following the Centre's revision (EDMC).

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) crossed the halfway point with 131 seats in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections on Wednesday, according to figures released by the State Election Commission (SEC) for the MCD polls. A party requires 126 votes to win out of the 250 wards in the MCD.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which has so far won 99 seats, defied the trend that exit polls had indicated. The party did not appear to win more than 91 seats in any exit poll. Over seven seats have been claimed by the Congress. It's interesting to note that the AAP won three of these wards in 2017 while the BJP won one.
