NEW DELHI: The AAP led in five seats and the BJP and the Congress in one seat each as officials Tuesday counted the votes polled in the 70-member Delhi assembly election.

Aam Aadmi Party leaders Manish Sisodia and Somnath Bharti, who were ministers in the Arvind Kejriwal government, forged ahead of their rivals, election officials said.

Three other AAP candidates were also on the winning track.

BJP's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi and Congress veteran A.K. Walia also forged ahead of their rivals.

Exit polls have predicted a win for the AAP, which ruled Delhi for 49 days until Kejriwal resigned as chief minister in February 2014.

Earlier, Kejriwal tweeted: "All the very best Delhiites. Do pray. Prayers are very powerful."

Over 67 percent of the 13.3 million electorate voted Saturday.
