BJP's Raj Bala Malik has been elected as the Mayor of Chandigarh after she defeated her competitor, Congress' Gurbax Rawat by a margin of 22 votes on Friday. 

During the previous time of voting, due to an inner rift between the BJP camp, the member of the party was cross-voting but this time, the alliance of BJP-SAD got them 22 votes while Congress got five of its votes. 

BJP has 22 councillors, Congress has 5 and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has one in the 27-councillor Chandigarh MC in which MP Kirron Kher also possesses the voting right (and she voted as well) as an ex-officio member of MC.
