AAP likely to retain in power for Third consecutive term
Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to retain power in the national capital for the third consecutive term. As per the latest election trends, AAP is ahead on 56 seats while the BJP is lagging behind at 14 seats.
The Congress Party, however, is nowhere in the race, with no early lead in its kitty. While AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal is leading from the New Delhi seat, his lieutenant Manish Sisodia is trailing from the Patparganj seat.
Amid a huge gap between the BJP and AAP, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari has said that there is still time before counting of votes concludes. He also said as the BJP chief, he would accept the Delhi people's mandate respectfully.
