BJP vs AAP: Delhi MCD mayor elections today. See key points here5 min read 06 Jan 2023, 07:44 AM IST
The post of mayor is considered prestigious and a Delhi mayor wielded a lot of power until the erstwhile unified MCD, set up in 1958, was trifurcated into North Delhi, South Delhi and East Delhi municipal corporations in 2012 with a mayor each for three civic bodies.
The civic bodies were reunified in May 2022.
Delhi MCD mayor election will be held today i.e. on 6 January, a month after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) bagged 134 wards in the polls and ended the BJP's 15-year rule in the civic body.
