The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is an autonomous administrative body in the state of Delhi, India. It comprises three smaller corporations – North Delhi Municipal Corporation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation, and East Delhi Municipal Corporation.
The MCD election is scheduled to take place on April 23, 2017 after a period of 5 years. While Delhi has a population of nearly 20 million, it has more than 13 million eligible voters.
At present, three major parties Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Congress are in the field for the MCD election. However, now a new political outfit Swaraj Indiahas also decided to try its luck to enter the 272-member civic body.
