New Delhi: Nearly 54% of all eligible voters turned out to vote for Delhi Civic Polls for the 272 wards in which the BJP is locked in a triangular battle with the Congress and the AAP. The votes will be counted on April 26, but the outcome is billed to have a wider political impact, rather than merely being restricted to which party captures power at the Civic Centre, Delhi’s municipal headquarters.
As the national capital awaits the results of a poll that was keenly watched and contested, News18 India and CNN-News18 will bring the most comprehensive counting day coverage with minute-to-minute updates.
The coverage would be led by Deputy Managing Editors – Kishore Ajwani and Sumit Awasthi on News18 India and by Executive Editor Bhupendra Chaubey on CNN-News18, who will be joined by channels’ team of correspondents, reporters and political analysts to bring most incisive analysis of the outcome of the MCD elections.
Latest happenings airs throughout the Counting day on 26th April 2017 from 7 AM on News18 India and from 8 AM on CNN-News18.
During the recent 5 State Elections Counting Day, News18 India and CNN-News18 were the first channels to call the elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Punjab, far ahead of the competition. It is this legacy of leadership and formidable expertise in covering elections that the channels will bring to bear upon their coverage of these key elections.
