Delhi is going to the polls today (February 8, 2020) to vote for a new assembly with 70 members. The competition takes place between the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress. The survey begins at 8:00 a.m. and lasts until 6:00 p.m.
Security measures have been tightened with around 2.50,000 Delhi police and paramilitary personnel stationed in the city's voting booths. In view of the numerous ongoing protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), there is an increased presence of security this time.
According to the Indian Election Commission, the total number of voters this year is 1, 47,86,382, of which 66,80,277 are female and 81,05,236 are male. The number of registered seniors is 2,04,830.
In the last parliamentary elections in Delhi in 2015, AAP won 67 seats, while BJP was content with 3 seats. Congress was unable to open its account and remained at zero. The results of the Delhi 2020 Assembly elections will be announced on February 11.
