In the run-up to the polls, Delhi witnessed high-voltage election campaigns by three major parties-- Congress, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

The AAP under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal is seeking another term at the office. In the previous Assembly elections, AAP had secured 67 seats while BJP had won three seats. Congress had failed to open its account. They would like to improve its performance in the Delhi Assembly elections 2020.

The main contest in the national capital is expected to take place between BJP and the AAP. The BJP had managed to win all seven Lok Sabha seats in the 2019 general election. The majority of exit polls believe BJP could be the second-largest party after AAP. However, BJP leaders claim that they win the majority of seats and form the government in Delhi.
