Former Goa Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader Digambar Kamat on Saturday won from Margao constituency.

Kamat garnered 12,105 votes while rival Sharmad Raiturkar (BJP) got 7,929 votes.

The main candidates from Margao were Santosh Raiturkar (AAP), Sharmad Raiturkar (BJP) and Digambar Vasant Kamat (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.
