While the Chief Minister would be from the Sena, ministerial portfolios would be shared according the strength of each party, he said. The NCP and the Congress would also have deputy chief ministers in the state.

The formula, according to him, is one Minister for every four MLAs.

The Congress is likely to get 11 portfolios and the post of the Speaker in the Maharashtra Assembly. The rest of the portfolios would be shared by the Sena and the NCP, sources said.
