Aam Aadmi Party government maintains that it has little say in the national capital's governance.

New Delhi:

The Supreme Court is today expected to pronounce its verdict on petitions seeking a clarification on its July 2018 order spelling out the powers of the Delhi government and the Lieutenant Governor.

Lawyers representing the Aam Aadmi Party administration had told the court that ambiguities remained in dealing with administrative matters of the national capital in spite of the previous judgment delivered by a five-judge constitution bench headed by then Chief Justice Dipak Misra.

On November 1, a bench of Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan had concluded hearing petitions challenging notifications issued by the Arvind Kejriwal government in the wake of the top court verdict.
