New Delhi, Dec 8 (PTI) At least 51 per cent of the 250 newly elected councillors in the MCD have declared educational qualifications between Class 5 and Class 12 pass while 66 per cent are in the 41-70 age group, according to a Association for Democratic Reforms report.

The Association for Democratic Reforms and Delhi Election Watch analysed the self-sworn affidavits of 248 winning candidates in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections.

The qualifications of two winning candidates could not be analysed due to the unavailability of clear and complete affidavits with the State Election Commission, Delhi.
