    BMC Elections 2017

    Many political parties will contest to win 2017 BMC elections. The main parties contesting in these municipal elections are Indian National Congress (INC), Shiv Sena (SS), Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), Samajwadi Party (SP), Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Independents. MCGM election results will be shared after the vote counting is done. Main competition will be between Shiv Sena, Congress and BJP. Apart from these, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) can also impact the 2017 BMC election results.

    In BMC elections 2012, none of the party could manage to have majority, so either alliance was required or re election was a way forward. Despite winning maximum seats in the region, Shiv Sena needed BJP and Republican Party of India to rule for next 5 years. Thus BJP, Shiv Sena and Republican Party of India made alliance.This alliance allowed them to rule Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and come in power.

    Recent Update on BMC Elections

    As per latest announcement made by Maharashtra State Election Commission, opinion polls can not be shared until evening of 21 February. The polls and surveys were put under restriction, starting from 14 February midnight. In an effort to impact BMC election result 2017, few fake opinion polls were released in recent days. However official news channels have already clarified that those polls were fake. Opinion polls are just a way of guessing BMC election results 2017, but no such prediction was shared before BMC voting date(21 Feb).

    Municipal body has recently brought few changes in October 2016. Revision of ward boundaries is done under latest announcement. Reservation related rules was also changed in this revision. Seats on Some of wards are increased, such as R North ward and R South Ward. Similarly seats for few wards has been reduced. The overall seats remains 227, post the revision by Municipal body. These changes are done before the elections. The 2017 BMC election results will appoint new corporators on these revised wards.


    In BMC elections 2017, 50% seats will be blocked (reserved) for women candidates; 114 seats. The 114 seats reserved for women includes the seats reserved for caste. SC has 15 seats reserved for them, ST has reservation rights over 2 seats. Backwards castes category has 61 seats, which are reserved for them. Remaining 159 seats are open for general category, in which 50% share is kept for women as stated earlier. These changes has come few months before the elections, and it is expected to bring some changes to election related strategies and preparation.

    According to the announcement made by Uddhav Thackeray on 26 January, Shiv Sena will not contest elections in alliance with BJP in 2017. This makes the overall political scenario more interesting in forthcoming polls.

    Main Political Parties Contesting BMC Elections 2017

    Shiv Sena has a good base here, party knows the region and people well. These BMC election results 2012 were good for Shiv Sena, they won 75 seats. Shiv Sena won on maximum number of seats. In 2007 elections, Shiv Sena secured 82 seats and stayed at top in number of seats. In 2017 BMC elections, Shiv Sena will try to have majority win as they are closer than any other party. As the party is already winning more seats than any other party, they might achieve this task in BMC elections 2017.

    Congress was way behind in winning these elections. INC secured a good number of 52 seats but it was not good enough. They could not step into BMC office as ruling party. If Congress could connect to voters and get some more seats, winning the elections is not an impossible task. However their share of seats got decreased as compared to 2007, during which they won 76 seats. For them, it is time to learn from the previous mistake and make a comeback.

    Bhartiya Janata Party has not shown a spark here during last elections. This National party won 31 seats in 2012 BMC elections. It was more than their tally of 28 seats in 2007. They have to work on attracting more voters if they are truly eyeing to win with majority or find their ground. A lot of work is required by them, for emerging as a stronger party here which do not need alliance. They are ruling the centre government after winning 2014 Parliamentary elections. Current decisions of PM can also impact the election in BJP’s favour or vice versa. Number of crucial decisions were made by PM, such as demonetization, Jan Dhan Yojana etc. We might see some impact of that as well.

    The political parties are focusing on many key factors and development related issues. The BMC elections are conducted to elect the corporators and Mayor. Mayor is the generally the member of majority party. Corporators are chosen by people for every ward by casting their votes. Voters of various wards will choose their respective corporators in these election result of BMC.

    About Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)

    BMC stands for Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation which is a civic body. It is also referred as Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) and it is responsible for governing Mumbai.

    The budget allotted to BMC exceeds the budgets of some states of India. It is the richest municipal body of the country. Mumbai is one of the main cities of India and it is called as economical capital of India. so the budget requirement is not very surprising considering the maintenance and facilities such an important city requires. All the civic administration, infrastructure, maintenance for Mumbai city and its suburbs comes under BMC. An IAS officer is appointed as BMC head who holds all executive powers of the house. Mayor, head of the house, is appointed after each election and it is generally a member of party winning in results of BMC elections.
