MARGAO: Margao Municipal Council (MMC) Councillor Damodar Shirodkar has filed his nomination for the post of Chairperson. The elections are scheduled to take place tomorrow at 11 am.
Earlier, the election of the Chairperson was conducted by secret ballot. This new system will be first implemented to elect the Chairperson of Margao Municipal Council, where the ruling party faced embarrassment after its candidate suffered a defeat at the hands of Goa Forward-backed Independent Ganashyam Shirodkar by 15-10 votes due to cross-voting by five BJP-backed councillors.
The Ordinance will be first implemented to elect the Chairperson of Margao Municipal Council, where the ruling party faced embarrassment last month as their candidate was defeated by an independent in secret voting.
Goa Forward chief Vijai Sardesai took to social media on Sunday to announce that the party will abstain from voting in the ensuing polls for the MMC Chairperson’s post, but not before slamming friend-turned-foe Digambar Kamat for murdering democracy to satisfy his greed.
