The BJP, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP) got into a coalition after the elections results were declared on March 11. Manohar Parrikar took charge as the Chief Minister of Goa on March 14. On the other hand, Congress, which came out as the single largest party in the elections, failed to stake claim and will have to sit in the Opposition.
