The AAP has contested all the seats in Delhi, while the BJP contested in alliance with the JD-U; and the Congress was in alliance with the RJD.

All exit polls have suggested that the ruling AAP will be back in power in Delhi. While some exit polls suggest that the BJP is likely to gain ground, it will not be enough. The BJP has been waiting to return to power for almost two decades.

The polling for the 70-member Delhi Assembly, held on February 8, recorded over 60 per cent voter turnout.
