Voting for the 2022 Municipal Corporation of Delhi election was held on December 4 and votes will be counted starting 8am Wednesday. The election is widely seen as a straight fight between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party. Many see the Congress as being unlikely to present much of a challenge to either party. This is the first election in the national capital since the delimitation of wards reduced the number of seats from 272 to 250.
