Incumbent AAP set to crush Modi’s BJP in New Delhi

Published on February 8, 2020 by

India’s capital has voted in a crucial state election, with exit polls showing the incumbent Aam Aadmi Party (common man’s party or AAP) led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is set for a hat-trick victory.
Residents on Saturday lined up in long queues across New Delhi neighbourhoods, where nearly 57 percent of the capital’s 14.7 million voters cast their ballots. Results will be declared on Tuesday.
Exit polls telecast on Indian news channels shortly after the voting ended at 6pm (12:30 GMT) predict a strong showing for the AAP, which could win more than 50 of the 70 seats.
In 2015, the party had won a landslide 67 seats, and is now eyeing a second successive five-year term.
