Delhi Assembly elections on 7th February 2014

Delhi will vote for a new Assembly in a single phase on February 7 while counting will take place on February 10. President's Rule in Delhi ends on February 15 and the Election Commission said the new Assembly will be constituted before that date. Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath and Election Commissionsers H S Brahma and Nasim Zaidi, said the notification for the polls will be issued on January 14 while the last date for filing nominations will be January 21. The last date of scrutiny will be January 22. Sampath told a press conference here that 1.30 crore voters were eligible to exercise their franchise across 70 constituencies in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi. “The dissolution (of the Delhi Assembly) order of the President will expire by February 15 and in order to restore the mandate of the people as expeditiously as possible, the Commission has decided to go in for elections where the results will be known well before February 15,” Sampath said.
Delhi-NCR has been under President's rule ever since Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal resigned from the chief minister's post on 14 February 2014. The 5th assembly election in December 2013 was a hung one. BJP won as the single-largest party with 31 seats but failed to achieve majority and while AAP won 28 seats, Congress was reduce to minority with just 8. Consequently, BJP refused to forge alliance or take support of any of the two parties to form government in Delhi. Following this, AAP sought then ruling government Congress' support in forming government in NCR and Kejriwal was sworn-in as the Chief Minister on 28 December, 2013. However, Kejriwal's tenure as Delhi CM lasted for only 49 days as he quit over the government's failure to introduce the Jan Lokpal Bill in the Delhi assembly.
