It would be better if the Lok Sabha Speaker is elected unanimously, understand the meaning of Kiren Rijiju's statement


New Delhi: Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju on Friday said it is always better to have a consensus election for the Lok Sabha Speaker. His remarks came at a time when opposition parties appear keen to contest the Lok Sabha Speaker's election. When the Parliamentary Affairs Minister was asked if he has approached opposition parties for the Lok Sabha Speaker's election, Rijiju said, “It is always better to have a consensus.”

What did Rijiju say about talks with the opposition?
He said that before arriving at any decision, NDA allies will be consulted. On the question of talks with opposition leaders, Rijiju said, “We will take action very soon.”

Parliament session will begin from Monday
The first session of the new 18th Lok Sabha will begin on June 24 and the election for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker is to be held on June 26. The names of BJP leaders D Purandeswari, Radha Mohan Singh and Bhartruhari Mahtab are in discussion for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. A section of political circles is also believing that the current Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla may get a second term.

In the Lok Sabha elections, the alliance of opposition parties 'Bharat' won 234 seats, while the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA retained power for the third consecutive time by winning 293 seats. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) with 16 seats and the Janata Dal (U) with 12 seats are the biggest allies of the BJP. The BJP has won 240 seats.
