“The responses are still being received. The compilation would be conducted Sunday evening and the result would be announced on Monday,” he said.

He also said that the party was receiving responses from people outside Delhi too.

AAP had launched a message campaign on Tuesday evening seeking to know if it should form a government after the December 4 elections resulted in a hung assembly.

The BJP, which ended as the single largest party with 31 seats in the 70-member house, declined to form a government. The AAP, with 28 seats, was invited next but sought time to give its reply.

The routed Congress, left with just eight seats, offered outside support to the AAP.

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday said his party would announce its final decision on taking power December 23 after finding out the views of the people.
