The Goa assembly election 2022 was held on February 14 in a single phase for 40 assembly seats. All of the constituencies of the state are divided into just two districts - North and South Goa. Sanquelim is one of the key constituencies in the coastal state - also the smallest in the country - where Chief Minister Pramod Sawant is sought re-election. In several seats, analysts had said that votes may be split due to a multi-cornered battle. see more

The Congress, the AAP, and the Trinamool Congress-MGP combine were among the challengers to the ruling BJP.

In 2017 Goa assembly polls, the Congress had won 17 seats, becoming the single-largest party. The BJP had won 13 seats. However, defections turned tables in the favour of the BJP later. This time, the Congress made its candidates take an oath of loyalty.

For the first time in two decades, the BJP contested the Goa polls without Manohar Parrikar who died in 2019. His son Utpal Parrikar contested from Panjim, after he was denied ticket by the BJP, and the opposition parties had latched on to the issue.

Margao witnessed another interesting poll battle between former chief minister Digambar Kamat and state minister Manohar Ajagaonkar.

Goa poll results were declared on March 10.
