Goa CM Pramod Sawant wins assembly floor test
BJP-led government in Goa won the floor test in the state assembly. Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant got the support of 20 MLAs in the 36-member assembly. The floor test was overseen by acting Speaker and Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Michael Lobo. This comes a day after Pramod Sawant resigned from the post of Goa Assembly Speaker to swear in as the chief minister in a past-midnight oath taking ceremony. Two deputy chief ministers were made under the new power-sharing arrangement between the Bharatiya Janata Party and its alliance partners.
