Goa Lok Sabha Election Summary 2014

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won both the seats in Goa. The North Goa and South Goa constituencies are grabbed by BJP.
The smallest state of the country, Goa, represents two Lok Sabha seats. The present government in Goa is run by Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) alliance and Laxmikant Parsekar is the present Chief Minister of the state. BJP and Indian National Congress (INC) are the major political parties in the state. In 2009 elections, BJP and INC won one seat each. The past history of Lok Sabha polls in Goa have witnessed the lead by these political parties in the state only. The 2014 Lok Sabha elections saw 76.82% voter turnout in Goa.
