Delhi recorded a voter turnout of 62.59 per cent when elections were held on Saturday.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP was leading in 56 of the 70 seats in the assembly and the BJP in 14, said the Election Commission’s website after counting of votes began at 8am Tuesday.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was leading in Delhi’s contested state election, racing ahead of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to return to power in the national capital.
If AAP retains power, it will be the third straight electoral setback for the BJP after losing Jharkhand and Maharashtra elections last year.
The Congress party, which ruled Delhi for 15 years before being voted in 2013, was yet to open its tally.
