 Live Press conference was going on at 8.20pm with Sudin, Vijay etc
Vijay says there will be no compromise on  Goemkar and Goemkarponn issues

Check what Vijay Sardesai has to say..
We in GF contested only 4 seats.. we have won 3 seats..
We cannot waste this mandate by being oblivious to the choices we have in formation of Stable govt that will ensure development of the state. Our mantra is Goem Goemkar Goemkarponn, this slogan given us these 3 seats.. We will never make any compromise on these issues on Goy Goemkar Goemkarponn. But at the same time, to take this forward, we believe the need for stable govt, a Govt that will ensure development, a Govt that will have co-operation with the centre which has been committed to us by Mr Nitin Gadkari specially the gov has sanction thousands of crore rupees in development works in the State of Goa in the last 2 years.  We look forward to this type of development in our constituencies first and also in the rest of Goa and I believe in the development  and protecting the interest of Sons of the soil, we take Goa Forward and we feel that the person best capable to do it with his experience and clear image is Mr. Manohar Parrikar. There we made a demand that the legislature party of the BJP should be lead by and Chief Minister should be Manohar Parrikar and we are happy to be in this coalition. But we also like to reassure every Goan that we will be watch dogs for Goemkarponn.. One’s political life there are some hard choices to make , with these choices we made we will not betray the cause of Goem Goemkar Goemkarponn.  Eventually, the people who will not be comfortable with the choices we taken now.. Eventually everybody will be happy and Goa will go forward. Thank you

It should be Cong who should have gone to Governor first but it looks like they are struggling to choose their own leader as there may be too many claimants including ex Ministers etc

Letters of support with Governor's Invitation to form Govt

View / Read it bigger here

With this written support already, Congress will now left with only two  which will make their total  (17+2) 19 only.  I guess Congress lost the opportunity to form Govt for which they are only to blame.
They knew very well that Parrikar said they will stake claim soon after the results declared..

New Govt formula or pattern  to include Cabinet berths to all 3 GF MLAs, 2 to MGP and one each to Rohan and Govind

Now, Sanguem Independent  MLA also gave unconditional support to BJP. Strength now 22
Yesterday, there were reports that NCP Churchill Alemao also supported BJP but in today's news channel he denies that.

New Govt swearing in ceremony tomorrow at 5pm (Tuesday)

Looks like Congress approached court, whether the ceremony will actually take place will be known by noon tomorrow (Tuesday)
Court refused to stay the swearing in ceremony, ordered floor test within 48hrs
BJP passes floor test on 16.3.17 - 22 in favour (Cong.16)

Cheap and pathetic sound system of Election Commission of Goa on votes counting day at Panaji Campal on 11.3.17
Poor quality sound, no sound, break down, cross connection (two announcements same time) etc etc.
'Its like Mahatma Gandhi era' says CCP Mayor
It was said on 6th February TV news that EC Goa election expenditure so far was Rs. 57 crore, it must have crossed 60crore by now
I wonder, what would the sound System bill for the day?
They could have arranged a Giant TV screen (There was one Pvt installation by Prudent TV? don't know if also finance by EC goa).
No mobiles were allowed inside counting hall, there were notices too on all gates but they were repeatedly making annoucement on mike requesting and reminding about it which could mean there were some using phones inside the counting hall?
What more?
It was said that all results will be out by 11am, then they said by 12noon. Votes counting stated 8am. We arrived there at 9am, not a single result was out.
1. Mandrem (Parsekar/Sopte), the first constituency to take up for counting
They announced its results as follows:
Round 1 at 9.06am
Round 2 at 9.45
Postal ballots round - 10.25
Round 3 - 10.49
Final round/Result announcement 11.18
We got fed up and bored, we left. When we arrived home at 1pm, we saw on TV that about 20 results out so far.
I think all results were out after 5pm
It was more like Ballot paper votes counting
ECI Goa, are you reading this?
