Margao: While elections of the new managing committee was scheduled at nine comunidades in Salcete on Sunday, but the polls were held at only two comunidades as there was no quorum at seven comunidades.
The comunidades where quorum was not established were Calata, Seraulim, Deussua, Guirdolim, Davorlim, Benaulim and Assolna and the two comunidades where elections were held were at Aquem and Raia.
Aquem comunidade followed the Margao comunidade pattern of electing only the president, treasurer and attorney and not electing the substitutes. While Joaquim Marinonio Monte da Silva was elected the President, Danny Joseph Rodrigues was elected the treasurer and Celestino Noronha was re-elected as the Attorney.
The elections for Aquem comunidade were conducted by Margao Talathi Kalpesh Deulkar. One of the shareholders Nazareth Barreto questioned why the elections were not conducted in Aquem comunidade office and said he would object to the election process.[H]
