The counting will be done by the areas’ returning officers. The counting of votes will take place on December 7.
A massive rush is expected at the offices of returning officers on Monday, as a big number of candidates from the national capital’s three major parties — the AAP, BJP, and Congress — will file their nominations on the last day, news agency PTI reported.
According to authorities, just 35 nominations have been filed since the process began on November 7.
