Floor test

The Shiv-Sena-Congress-NCP government was successful in proving a majority by garnering 169 votes in the floor test conducted on Saturday. As the Opposition staged a walkout - there were no votes against the alliance, while four chose to abstain from voting. The BJP walked out of the Assembly calling the session invalid as he alleged that the oath of the Chief Minister and MLAs were not according to constitutional norms. The floor test was initially supposed to be held on November 27, according to Supreme Court's order is being held on Saturday.

Former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis opposed the Assembly in progress citing four points of contention -

  • Vande Mataram was not sung at the start of the Assembly
  • Oath taken by the ministers did not follow constitutional norms
  • Change in pro-tem speaker before the floor test from BJP's  Kalidas Kolambkar to NCP's Dilip Walse Patil
  • Conducting the floor test before electing a new Speaker

Earlier in the day, Congress' Nana Patole has been nominated as the next Speaker, as the alliance had agreed that Congress will decide the Speaker. The Assembly will hold a two-day sitting on the weekend with the floor test on Saturday and the election of the Speaker on Sunday. Meanwhile, the NCP will decide on a Deputy CM pick after December 22.
