The AAP formed the government with a big majority in 2015 with 67 out of 70 seats after the national capital went to polls for the second time in 14 months. This victory made it the best win margin ever for a party in the national capital.

Arvind Kejriwal, the incumbent Chief Minister had resigned from the post of Chief Minister and a 49 day coalition government with the Indian National Congress ended its rule. The national capital was under president’s rule for a year before it went to polls again that saw dramatic shift of fortunes for the Aad Aadmi Party that had won 28 seats in the elections in December 2013.

The assembly elections are all set to take place on February 8 and the counting of votes will take place on February 11, 2020.
