Congress candidate Clafasio Dias on Saturday won the Cuncolim assembly constituency.

While Dias garnered 6,415 votes, his rival and Independent candidate Joaqim Alemao got 6,382 votes. Bharatiya Janata Party's Subhash alias Rajan K Naik scored 5,047 votes from constituency No. 34 of the Goa Legislative Assembly.

AAP's star candidate Elvis Gomes, who was expected to win on an AAP ticket, stood fourth. He got 3,437 votes.

The main candidates were Elvis Gomes (AAP), Subhash Alias Rajan K. Naik (BJP) and Clafasio Dias (Congress).

In 2012, voters in the costal state had voted the BJP to power with 21 seats, the majority mark in the 40-seat Assembly. The Congress had won nine seats, while Independents had won five. Two seats were won by others.

This time, the Aam Aadmi Party made its electoral debut in the state, but Exit Polls predicted the party will end up with a single tally count. Most predicted the BJP would emerge as the single-largest party. The saffron party, however, had not projected incumbent Laxmikant Parsekar as the chief ministerial face and instead hinted at Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar's return to state politics.
