Result of Goa polls to be out by 2 PM: Officer

The result of all 40 constituencies in Goa that went to polls on February 4 would be out within six hours of the counting of votes scheduled on March 11, a top election official said today.

The counting of votes will be held at Margao and Panaji simultaneously. "The counting process will begin at 8 AM on March 11. While the first result is expected to be announced by 10 AM, all results are expected to be announced by 2 PM. Entire counting process would be over within six hours (from 8 AM)," Goa Chief Electoral Officer Kunal told PTI today.

A voters' turnout of around 82 per cent was recorded in the single-phase elections for 40 seats in South Goa and North Goa districts.

The coastal state is witnessing a four-cornered contest among the ruling BJP, opposition Congress, an alliance led by the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and new entrant the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
