The Shiv Sena finished second securing 22 seats, followed by the Congress Party with 10 and the other independent candidates got two seats.


Surprisingly, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) did not even manage to open its account in the civic polls, who last time had secured second position with 26 seats from here.

The Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation went to polls on August 20 and recorded around 47 percent turnout.

The voting was held for 94 seats, out of 95 as one unopposed seat has already been won by the Congress candidate.
