Shelly Oberoi becomes mayor
MCD elections were held in Delhi 84 days back in which Aam Aadmi Party won. However, the BJP tried many tricks to make its mayor in Delhi. Several times the date for the mayor’s election was fixed, but each time the councilors of the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party clashed with each other and the election had to be canceled. The matter went to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court declared the nominated councilors ineligible to vote in the mayoral elections.
Finally, elections were held on Wednesday 22/02/2023 in which AAP candidate Shaili Oberoi won by getting 150 votes. Rekha Gupta who was the candidate of the BJP got 116 votes. Shelly Oberoi had to wait for 84 days to become the mayor. The results of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi came on 7 December 2022. Three times the date of the election for the post of Mayor was fixed but due to uproar, the election could not be held.
Mayor Shaili Oberoi will be able to stay only for 38 days
Shaili Oberoi has been elected as the Mayor of Delhi after many upheavals but she will be able to remain in this post only for 38 days. Now you must be thinking that why is it so? So let us tell you about it.
In fact, there is a provision in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi Act that the mayor’s tenure lasts from 1st April to 31st March, i.e. for one year. Section 2(67) of the DMC Act provides that the tenure of the MCD shall commence from 1st April till 31st March. In this way, this session will end on 31st March. In this way Shaili Oberoi who became mayor on 22nd February, her tenure will end on 31st March next month and in this way, she will be in the post of mayor only for 84 days. After this, the election for the post of mayor will be held again on April 1. It is not certain in which direction the new elections will take place because BJP will once again use one trick or the other.
