Goa Election 2017 Result Summary

The Congress has bagged 15 seats and is leading in 2 seats while the BJP won 13 seats, marginally lagging behind in the house of 40-members. Aam Aadmi party fought the Goa elections for the first time but failed to open an account in the state. The MGP+ won four seats. Since no party has secured a simple majority it would be the Governors prerogative to call a party of his choice to form the government. In this situation, a coalition government is imminent and so the role of MGP and independents would be crucial at the time of formation of the government.
