The late Rural Development minister’s daughter Pankaja Munde had constituted from the Parli constituency and lead in the place with a margin of 234 votes.

Former senior opposition leader, Eknath Khadse is also believed to be in the ongoing Chief Ministership race with the Assembly results declared. This leader has been winning in his constituency since the past 25 years and was the irrigation minister during Sena-BJP government in 1995. Khadse’s desire to be the Chief Minister became evident after he said, “North Maharashtra is yet to get a chance to see its representative at the helm. Once the BJP-Shiv Sena comes to power, this demand should be considered.”
Nitin Gadkari has rubbished the ideas of the in the race of becoming the Chief Minister, Union transport and shipping minister saying, “I am not in the race for chief ministership as I am not interested in returning to state politics, and there are many capable leaders.” Although he refused the ideas of being among the top contenders to become the CM of Maharashtra.
