The two wards where the elections will be postponed include Maujpur in East Delhi and Sarai Pipal in North Delhi. Both candidates belonged to the Samajwadi Party.
"Elections to the two wards have been postponed. While polling in Maujpur will be held on May 14, in Sarai Pipal it will take place on May 21," a senior official of Delhi State Election Commission said.
Delhi Samajwadi Party spokesperson R S Yadav said, "Both the candidates were aged between 40 to 45 years. While our Maujpur candidate was a woman who died a natural death, our Sarai Pipal candidate was a man who died from shock."
Off the total 272 wards, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation and the SDMC have 104 seats each while the EDMC has 64.
