    Goa Municipal Election: No rally, procession or meeting after counting of votes

    Goa Municipal Election result 2021: Reports suggest that a deputy collector has urged all contesting candidates to refrain from organising any rally, procession or meeting after counting of votes. He has said that no permission shall be issued for such rallies and any contravention will be viewed seriously. 

    The polls in these five municipal councils were postponed after a High Court order. The court had said that the procedures followed for reservation of municipal poll constituencies for women, SC, ST and OBCs were not correct. The High Court's decision was upheld by the Supreme Court which directed the State Election Commission to complete the polls by April 30.
