The Election Commission has announced the schedule for the Delhi assembly elections. The elections will be held on February 8 and results will be declared on February 11.
A total of 1.46 crore voters can exercise their franchise in the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections, according to the final electoral list for Delhi published today. Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Delhi Ranbir Singh said the final publication of voters list shows there are total 1,46,92,136 voters in Delhi including 80.55 lakh males and 66.35 lakh females.
This will be the first election in Delhi since the BJP swept the Lok Sabha polls early last year; the party swept all 7 parliamentary seats in Delhi.
Some key issues the three main parties in this election – AAP, BJP and Congress – are likely to focus on are the pollution crisis that engulfed the city state in the final few months of last year and controversy over the centre’s move to regularise 1,731 unauthorised residential colonies.
