As per the State Election Commission figures, the BJP, which exit polls predicted would suffer a massive defeat, has won 104 seats. The Congress could only manage to get nine seats. Three Independent candidates, including Shakeela Begum from Seelampur in northeast Delhi, have also won.

The counting of votes began at 8 am, and initial trends put the BJP ahead of Kejriwal's party by a significant margin, but the pendulum swung in the AAP's favour as the counting progressed.

MCD mandate will show AAP is a fiercely-honest party, says Manish Sisodia

Ahead of the announcement of election results for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday said that this mandate will be a signal from Delhi to the whole country that the Aam Aadmi Party is a "fiercely-honest party".

"This mandate will be a signal from Delhi to the whole country that AAP is a fiercely-honest party. The BJP levelled fake allegations against me, and ran a witch-hunt against Satyendar Jain. But the people of Delhi have proven with their mandate that there was no scam in Delhi and all the allegations levelled by the BJP were false, motivated by conspiracy and dirty politics," Sisodia said.

He also added that the people of Delhi will reject the BJP`s lies, conspiracy and dishonesty, and choose CM Arvind Kejriwal`s honesty and work-based politics.

"The BJP roped in many of its Chief Ministers and Union ministers to campaign against the AAP in the run-up to the MCD polls, but the public did not fall for its traps and completely rejected BJP`s politics of dishonesty," Sisodia said.
