The high-stakes Delhi elections were held on 8 February 2020 to elect 70 members of the Delhi Legislative Assembly. The total turnout in Delhi was recorded at 62.82%, a decline of 4.65% from the previous assembly election in Delhi.
This was the first time since 1998 when Delhi recorded a decline in voter turnout. In 1998, the national capital had recorded a voter turnout of just 48.99 per cent which was a sharp decline of more than 12 percentage points from 61.75 per cent.
Since the entry of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi's electoral politics, the capital has witnessed a three-way fight among BJP, Congress and the AAP.
The Aam Aadmi Party swept the 2020 Delhi Assembly elections, winning a massive 62 out of 70 seats. This was the second straight election that the people of Delhi gave a decisive mandate in favour of AAP. The BJP won just eight seats while the Congress party drew a blank again and also suffered a major dent in its vote share.
Arvind Kejriwal took oath for the third time as the chief minister of Delhi on February 16.
In 2015 assembly elections, AAP swept the elections by bagging 67 out of 70 assembly seats.
