As per the seat sharing deal between Shiv Sena and GSM, Shiv Sena will contest five seats, including three seats in North and two seats in South Goa.

As a result of the alliance, GSM-Shiv Sena-Goa Praja Party together will contest next assembly elections. All the alliance candidates would be declared by December 15 and thereafter they will hold a public meeting which would be attended by Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.
