The mayoral candidate of the Aam Aadmi Party, Shelly Oberoi, on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to keep the mayoral election time-bound, party officials said.
Delhi’s mayoral election was postponed for the second time this month on Tuesday as the House was indefinitely adjourned by the LG-appointed speaker following an uproar from some councillors.
AAP leaders said Oberoi approached the court on Thursday and the case is likely to be heard on Friday.
Earlier, the AAP had accused the BJP of pre-planning the crowds in the House and claimed that the BJP councilors stormed the House well with printed signs.
The first meeting of the newly elected House of Delhi Municipal Corporation (MCD) was also adjourned on January 6 amid an uproar from AAP and BJP members.
The AAP won 134 out of 250 wards in the MCD polls conducted last December.
The BJP managed to win 104 divisions.
