The month of February is a very important month for civic elections in Maharashtra. Not only is the country's richest municipal corporation going to the polls, namely the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), but also civic corporations of nine other cities and various District Councils in Maharashtra too are going to have a mandate. Every media platform is touting these polls as crucial, maintaining that it will clearly reflect the citizens' voting approach, a preview so to say, of the State Assembly elections scheduled for 2019.

The 2017 BMC elections results date, like for the other civic body polls in Maharashtra, will be declared tomorrow, on 23rd February 2017.

Looking back at 2012 Maharashtra Civic Elections

During the 2012 civic polls, the Shiv Sena party managed to win in five of the ten cities in the State of Maharashtra. While they won in the cities of Mumbai, Thane, Ulhasnagar, Nagpur and Akola, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) won in Pimpri-Chinchwad. The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) party unsettled everyone by winning 40 seats, becoming the undisputed winner in the major city of Nashik and came a close second in the city of Pune.

The present scenario in BMC

Like in the previous polls held in 2012, there are 227 electoral wards in the city of Mumbai for which candidates are contesting this year. More than 90,000 citizens were eligible to vote in Mumbai city alone. Thankfully, this time round there was a far better response and people did turn out in good numbers to cast their votes not just in Mumbai but in other cities as well. As per the data the voter turnout on 21st February 2017 was as follows:
  1. Mumbai: 55.28%

  2. Thane: 58%

  3. Ulhasnagar: 45%

  4. Pune: 54%

  5. Pimpri-Chinchwad: 67%
