AAP's Aaley Mohammad Iqbal becomes Delhi's Deputy Mayor

New Delhi, Feb 22 : Aam Aadmi Party councillor Aaley Mohammad Iqbal was on Wednesday elected as Delhi's Deputy Mayor, soon after his party's Shelly Oberoi was elected the Mayor after three adjourned meetings of the house.

Earlier in the day, Shelly Oberoi of the Aam Aadmi Party emerged victorious in the mayoral elections, defeating the BJP's Rekha Gupta.  This was the new municipal council's fourth attempt to elect a mayor and deputy mayor. The three previous elections were stalled amid ruckus over voting rights being given to nominated members.  The matter went to the Supreme Court which held that the members nominated to the MCD by the Lt Governor cannot vote to elect the mayor.
