Newly Elected Goa Lawmakers To Take Oath On Tuesday After Bypolls

The four newly-elected MLAs in Goa would be sworn in on Tuesday, state Assembly Speaker Michael Lobo has said.
In the recent bypolls held in four seats of the state, BJP's Subhash Shirodkar, Dayanand Sopte and Joshua D'Souza won from Shiroda, Mandrem and Mapusa, respectively, while Congress nominee Atanasio Monserrate emerged victorious in Panaji.
All of them will be administered the oath of office in the Assembly complex at 11 am on Tuesday, Mr Lobo said. 
The Panaji Assembly bypoll was necessitated due to the death of sitting BJP MLA and former chief minister Manohar Parrikar in March, while the death of sitting BJP MLA Francis D'Souza necessitated the bypoll in Mapusa.
The bypolls in Shiroda and Mandrem became necessary following the resignation of their sitting Congress lawmakers. 
Following the declaration of the bypoll results last week, the BJP is now the single largest party with 17 MLAs in the 40-member Assembly, followed by the Congress which has 15 legislators.
Besides, the House has three MLAs of the Goa Forward Party, three Independents and one legislator each of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party and the NCP.
