Summary

The 250-member Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House failed to elect the mayor, deputy mayor and six members of the MCD's standing committee on Tuesday as well. This was the second time in January that the House was convened for the purpose. Like the January 6 session, a "brawl" between an AAP councillor and a BJP councillor stalled the mayoral election on Tuesday. Now, a fresh date for mayoral polls will be announced soon.  Check Highlights on Delhi mayor election here.
