The crisis for the government is averted as Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray and eight others have been declared elected unopposed to the Legislative Council.

 

Apart from Thackeray, Council Deputy Chairperson Neelam Gorhe (Shiv Sena), four candidates of BJP - Ranjitsinh Mohite Patil, Gopichand Padalkar, Praveen Date and Ramesh Karad; NCP’s Shashikant Shinde and Amol Mitkari and Congress’s Rajesh Rathod were in the fray for the nine seats, which fell vacant on April 24.

 

The CM had the time to get elected to any house of Assembly before May 27, 2020. With this election, 59-year-old Thackeray, who is also the president of Shiv Sena, makes his debut as a legislator. He was sworn in as chief minister on November 28, 2019.
