Isidore Fernandes elected as Deputy Speaker of Goa Assembly 


Panaji: BJP MLA Isidore Fernandes was elected as the Deputy Speaker of Goa Legislative Assembly during the ongoing Session on Thursday without any election, as he was the sole contender for the post.

Speaker of Legislative Assembly Rajesh Patnekar announced election of Fernandes to the post, which had fallen vacant after Michael Lobo had resigned, before his induction in Pramod Sawant led cabinet.

Fernandes was one of the ten Congress MLAs who had switched over to BJP, a fortnight ago.

He was the only contender for the post as opposition had not fielded their candidate.
