After this, AAP’s mayoral candidate Shelly Oberoi appealed to the Supreme Court to hold elections. He also challenged the voting rights of aldermen. In this, the Supreme Court, while giving its verdict, made it clear that the Alderman does not have the right to vote, That’s why he will stay away from the mayoral election process. After a long wait, Delhi got a new mayor in Shelly Oberoi. And Aale Mohammad Iqbal was elected deputy mayor.
