The voting for all 250 wards took place on December 4.
How to follow the check results?

MCD with BJP since 2007
In April this year, the three civic bodies of the national capital were unified to form a single MCD, while the total number of wards was reduced from 272 to 250.
Exit polls have projected a sweep by the AAP, which has governed the Union territory of Delhi since December 2013. However, the exit polls may or may not be accurate.
The Congress, meanwhile, is projected to finish a distant third. In the previous two legislative assembly elections here, the grand old party could not send even a single MLA to the 70-member assembly.
