After long anticipation, Delhi’s mayoral elections were finally held on Wednesday, with Aam Aadmi Party’s Shelly Oberoi winning the polls and becoming the new mayor of the capital city after beating Bharatiya Janata Party’s Rekha Gupta by 34 votes, according to media reports.
Out of the 266 votes cast at the elections at the Civic Center, Oberoi had 150 votes to her name while Gupta could only accrue 116.
As the preceding three attempts at an election were delayed due to a commotion caused about the voting rights of nominated members, the polls on Wednesday marked the fourth, and the first successful, attempt at Delhi’s mayoral polls.
