Delhi Election Opinion Polls: Aam Aadmi Party to retain power in the national capital
New Delhi : Led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Aam Aadmi Party is likely to retain power in Delhi after the upcoming Assembly elections, dates for which have been announced by the Election Commission on Monday.
An Opinion Poll conducted by ABP claimed that AAP is likely to get 59 of 70 seats with close to 55 per cent vote share. During the last election, AAP had won 67 seats with over 54 vote share.
The BJP is likely to get only 26 per cent vote share, six per cent less than their last stint. The Congress is again predicted to come at number three with just 5 per cent vote share, it had got 9 per cent votes in 2015.
The Election Commission on Monday announced that the upcoming Assembly Election in Delhi will be conducted on February 8 and the counting of votes will be done on February 11.
While Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP is confident of repeating its 2015 performance when it won 67 of 70 Assembly seats, both the BJP and Congress would be hoping for an improved show this time.
The BJP is yet to make an official announcement on the name of their Chief Ministerial candidate for the upcoming elections.
On the other hand, the AAP is seeking a re-election with CM Arvind Kejriwal eyeing a second consecutive term. The Aam Aadmi Party has also roped in master poll strategist Prashant Kishor’s I-PAC to plan its election strategy.
The real picture, however, will be revealed only after February 11 when the results will be announced.
