MCD Election 2022
hear the news
Voting will be held for the United Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Friday, January 6. The Aam Aadmi Party has put forward Shelly Oberoi and the BJP has put forward Rekha Gupta as a candidate for the position of mayor. It is almost certain that the Aam Aadmi party, which won a major victory in the Municipal Corporation, will be elected as the mayor, but in the election of the mayor, the councilors can vote for the candidate of each party as they wish, and if they vote for the other party’s candidate, they will be punished. No action can be taken, so only after the vote is it decided who will be the mayor of Delhi.
Municipal affairs expert Jagdish Mamgain told Amar Ujala that 250 newly appointed corporators, seven Lok Sabha MPs, three Rajya Sabha MPs and 14 nominated members (one fifth of the members of the Legislative Assembly, one fifth of Delhi’s 70) are eligible for the election of the mayor of the municipal corporation (partly means 14 MLAs will vote for mayor, in this 13 MLAs from Aam Aadmi party and one MLA from BJP will vote).
The candidate who gets the majority in the ballot of a total of 274 members is proclaimed Mayor of Delhi. Since the president allows the candidates to withdraw their names before voting in the mayoral election, it will be decided at the very last moment whether or not the election for the office of mayor will take place. After the mayoral election, the election of the deputy mayor and the permanent members will also take place.
It has long been a tradition in municipal corporations for the post of deputy mayor to be given to the next largest party with the consent of the party that became mayor. But like the Rajya Sabha, this healthy democratic tradition has now also come to an end in the Delhi Assembly of Municipal Corporations. Now there is also a lot of competition between political parties for the position of deputy mayor.
