Panaji, Aug 28

Counting of votes polled for the two assembly by-elections in Goa on August 23, will start from 8.00 a.m. on Monday.

Nearly 75 per cent polling was recorded during the two by-polls in Panaji and Valpoi assembly constituency, where Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and Health Minister Vishwajit Rane are the key candidates.

While Girish Chodankar of the Congress and Anand Shirodkar of the Goa Suraksha Manch are the other significant candidates in the Panaji by-poll, in Valpoi, Rane's key opponent is Roy Naik of the Congress.

The by-poll in Panaji was necessitated after former Defence Minister Parrikar's return to state politics in March this year, as Chief Minister.
