Kejriwal tipped to return as Delhi CM as exit polls predict comfortable victory for AAP
With 57%,Delhi reports lower voter turnout than 2015
NewDelhi : Delhi on Saturday recorded overall 57 percent turnout, which is significantly below the 2015 turnout of 67.12 percent. However, low voter turnout may not deter Arvind Kejriwal to enter Delhi secretariat as the Chief Minister.
Several exit polls predict Kejriwal’s return as the Chief Minister with a comfortable majority, while BJP is likely to sit in the opposition. BJP, which has only 3 MLA’s in the current Assembly, is likely to improve its tally but it may not be enough to bring the party to power. On the other hand, the Congress party could once again end with a dismal performance.
The Times Now-IPSOS has predicted that AAP may get 44 seats and BJP may get 26 seats. The ‘Republic-Jan ki baat’ has predicted 48-61 seats for AAP, 9-21 seats for BJP and 0-1 seat for Congress. Meanwhile, the Polstrat-NewsX has predicted 53-73 seats for AAP, 11-17 for the BJP and 0-2 seats for the Congress. According to the C-Voter ABP News exit poll, the AAP will win 49 to 63 seats in Delhi, while the BJP is predicted to win 5 to 19 seats. TV9-Sisero has predicted 54 seats for AAP, 15 seats for BJP and 1 seat for Congress.
