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 Manohar Parrikar 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. As there are only two constituencies, it was a close competition between the two parties and the new entrant Aam Aadmi Party. The surveys and the exit polls expected one seat each to BJP and INC.

Goa is the smallest state in India in terms of area (3,702 sq km) and is the 4th smallest in terms of population. However, in terms of GDP per capita, it is the richest state in India. This state shares its border with Karnataka and Maharashtra.
