The Fifth Legislative Assembly of Delhi was constituted on 28 December 2013 after the Delhi Legislative Assembly elections on 4 December 2013.[1]

Election and Government formation[edit]

Total six national parties, eleven state parties, sixty registered (unrecognised) parties and other independent candidates contested for 70 assembly seats, with 31 seats, BJP emerged as the single largest party but fell short of the half way mark. BJP was closely followed by AAP. In absence of clear majority, Legislative Assembly of Delhi was hung. Being the single largest party, BJP approached the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung and refused to form a government. Thereafter, Indian National Congress offered "unconditional" support to the AAP. AAP initially rejected INC's support but later accepted it and formed the government with Arvind Kejriwal as the Chief Minister.[1][2][3]
