Mayoral polls in limbo despite CM out on bail

Wednesday, 22 May 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The mayoral polls in Delhi continue to remain in limbo even as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, whose signature was awaited for holding the elections, has been out on an interim bail for nearly 11 days. The sources at the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) said the file to seek Lt Governor V K Saxena's approval for the appointment of the presiding officer is yet to move from the municipal secretary's office.

 A fresh request will have to be sent to the Raj Niwas, which will pass through the Delhi chief secretary and the urban development department before reaching Chief Minister Kejriwal for appointing the presiding officer to hold the mayoral polls.

 "So far no new request from the existing mayor's office has been received to seek the LG's approval for conducting the Delhi mayoral elections. A fresh file for appointing the presiding officer will have to be moved from the MCD to the LG office," the sources said.

The MCD postponed the mayoral polls in April citing non-appointment of presiding officer by the LG.
