Arvind Kejriwal, the leader of a new anti-corruption party in India, has been sworn in as the chief minister of Delhi at an open-air ceremony in the city.
He has pledged to end the culture of privilege in Indian politics and used public transport to reach the ceremony. The party symbol is a broom.
The BBC reports the Aam Aadmi Party (Common Man's Party), won 28 of the 70 assembly seats and was able to form a government with Congress party support.
"This is a huge victory for the people of Delhi,'' Mr Kejriwal, a former public servant, said on Saturday. "The people of Delhi have shown that elections can be fought and won with honesty."
Earlier, the main opposition BJP, which emerged as the single largest party with 32 seats, declined to form a government and said it would sit in opposition. The Congress party won only eight seats.
