"Nominations for all these posts can be filed till April 26 in the office of municipal secretary of the respective corporation. Name can be withdrawn any time before commencement of the elections for the respective post," a statement said.
BJP is likely to romp home comfortable in North and East Delhi corporations as the party has enough numbers to elect a Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
However, in South Delhi Corporation, the party does not have a majority on its own though they have managed to enlist the support of at least nine councillors.
BJP is likely to nominate Rajni Abbi for the post of Mayor in North Delhi while Usha Shastri is the front runner for the post in East Delhi Corporation.
The party may also zero in on councillor Sarita Chaudhary as its candidate for the post Mayor in South Delhi Corporation.
