Congress Legislative Party leader Yuri Alemao is new Goa Leader of Opposition


Panaji: Speaker of Goa Legislative Assembly Ramesh Tawadkar on Friday recognized Congress Legislative Party leader Yuri Alemao as the new Leader of Opposition.

The Congress MLAs in Goa had elected Alemao, representing Cuncolim Assembly constituency, as the leader of the legislature wing. Alemao’s appointment as CLP leader was done after a group of eight Congress MLAs switched over to the BJP.

Michael Lobo was then the leader of opposition.

“The Speaker of Goa Legislative Assembly has recognized Yuri Alemao as the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Legislative Assembly, with effect from 30th September, 2022,” State Legislature Secretary Namrata Ulman has said in an order issued on Friday.

Reacting to the development, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Amit Patkar tweeted “Happy that Goa and Goans got the Leader of Opposition. As LOP, the responsibility is to lead the entire opposition in the Assembly and in civil society to emerge as the watch-dog on ruling powers. My best wishes and I am confident that @Yurialemao9 will walk the track.”

Goa legislative Assembly has three MLAs from Congress party.


  1. Congress is getting ready for the hat-trick. They successfully formed the Congress Janata Party Government two times in a straight election (2017 & 2022). Now Congress don’t want to miss the straight third time chance to form the Congress Janata Party in 2027. So Congress is getting ready from the grassroots to form the Congress Janata Party for the Third Time.
