Months of politicking in Delhi concluded on February 11 when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) retained power in the national capital with a thumping majority.

In what came as a near-repeat of its 2015 election performance, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s party won 62 of the total 70 Assembly seats in the national capital territory. Its main challenger, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), won the remaining eight constituencies.

In 2015, AAP had won 67 with the BJP winning the other three.
