Even though it has been more than two months since the elections to the Delhi Municipal Corporation were held (December 4, 2022), the city still does not have a Mayor. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won 134 of the 250 wards, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), 104 wards. However, the election of the Mayor, which is normally carried out in the first session of a new Council, could not be held on three attempts — on January 6 and 24, and February 6 — as the house was adjourned following 2/4 tumultuous exchanges between councillors from the BJP and AAP. The reason was that the presiding officer had allowed nominated members to vote in the election for the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and Standing Committee of the Corporation.
