AAP has retained most of its current MLAs (Member of Legislative Assembly) as in the 2015’s Assembly Election in Delhi, AAP won 67 seats out of 70, and restricted BJP to just 3 seats, however Congress Party could not even get a single seat.

Both BJP and Congress are yet to declare the candidate list from the Delhi Assembly Elections 2020, however, it goes without saying that there will be a triangular tiff between BJP, AAP, and Congress for power.
