BJP's Rahul Narvekar was elected as the Speaker after winning the election on Sunday and will be presiding over floor test proceedings.

New Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde will face a floor test on Monday to prove that his Shiv Sena faction along with the BJP has the majority in the Assembly.
