The 250-wards Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) goes to polls on December 4 and counting of votes will take place on December 7.
The BJP has been in power in the MCD – split in 2012 into North, South and East corporations and then merged this year – for three consecutive terms. The civic polls are largely seen as a triangular contest between BJP, AAP and Congress.
