Belgaumites all the results are out and the the mandate given by you fellow belgaumites is this.
Marathi Speaking 30 members and others 28 (others include 6 from the Sarvapaksha Sarvabhashik Chunavana Samitiand other kannada & urdu speaking candidates)
As on paper the power will land into the hands of the Marathi people but nothing can be said as its a number game. The majority required is 29 Marathi’s have 30 as of date if horse trading doesn’t happen this may continue or else the others might get the chance.
In all the political situation everywhere is a hung situation with no clear cut result.
The best part of this election is the Corporation will see 47 newly first timers and which is a good sign. 6 former (Mayors & dy.Mayors) could not get elected this time.
The highest margin of defeat was in ward No.17 Pandhari Parab won by a difference of over 1000 votes and the lowest defeat margin was 7 votes.
One more most important message the Belgaum corporation election has given is that all over the sate the candidates filed nominations under their respective national and state parties where as Belgaum was the only one corporation where all were independents. The politics in Belgaum is different that’s what I can say.
