It was no big surprise for many Delhi citizens to see the grand return of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal back in power, in the recently concluded assembly elections. The results were one-sided, as predicted by exit polls where the Aam Aadmi Party had the last laugh with 62 seats, comfortably, and the BJP ended being nowhere near. The national ruling party could only have 8. Meanwhile, the supporters of the Delhi Chief Minister are waiting for his upcoming oath ceremony which is likely to be held on Sunday, February 15.
"We will be holding the oath-taking ceremony on Sunday at 10 am... Everyone in Delhi is invited to come and bless their son, their brother, Arvind Kejriwal and take an oath for a better Delhi," said Mr. Manish Sisodia on behalf of AAP, speaking to media reporters during a press conference in which Mr. Kejriwal was also present.
As per the sources, there was a meeting held today in the morning, between Lt. Governor Anil Baijal and Mr. Kejriwal regarding the discussions about the oath-taking ceremony. The duration of the meeting was around 15 minutes. The latter also had a meeting with his MLAs, who then elected him as a leader of legislative party following which he will be staking claim to form the government.
He will also give his resignation first before his swearing-in ceremony.
The Delhi elections saw the return of AAP with a huge win over the BJP; the former succeeded to retain 62 seats out of a total of 70 while the latter just sat back with overall 8 seats (a slight increase of 5 compared to taking only 3 seats five years ago). Congress disappeared completely from the page, having a zero figure, second consecutive time after 2015 assembly elections.
