Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday comfortably won a floor test in the House by proving the majority of his BJP-led government in the State Assembly.
The change in leadership in Goa was necessitated due to the death of then CM Manohar Parrikar on Sunday.
Meanwhile, 20 MLAs voted for the motion of confidence in the two-day old government, while 15 opposed it, as a special session of the House was convened by Governor Mridula Sinha to conduct the floor test, after Sawant was sworn in as the CM during wee hours of Tuesday.
Besides 11 members from BJP, three each from Goa Forward Party, MGP and Independents supported Sawant during the head count conducted in the House.
Deputy Speaker Michael Lobo presided over the Assembly session.
