New Delhi : There has been no consensus between the ruling party and the opposition on the post of Lok Sabha Speaker. In such a situation, this will be the first time when elections will be held for the post of Speaker. This is because the names of the candidates for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker have been announced by both NDA and Bharat Alliance. Om Birla's name has been finalized from the BJP-led NDA. He has also held the post of Lok Sabha Speaker in the last session. This time too, he has filed nomination for the post of Speaker. At the same time, the name of K Suresh came up from Bharat Alliance. K Suresh also filed nomination on behalf of the opposition for the post of Speaker. Now voting for the post of Lok Sabha Speaker will be held on Wednesday at 11 am. Only after this it will be decided who will become the next Lok Sabha Speaker.

There will be election for Lok Sabha Speaker

Earlier there were reports that the matter between the ruling party and the opposition regarding the post of Speaker has been resolved. However, the opposition soon clarified its stand on this. The dispute deepened because the opposition was claiming the post of Deputy Speaker. There was no support from the ruling party on this. The opposition demanded that the Speaker should be from the ruling party and the opposition party should get the post of Deputy Speaker of the Lok Sabha. However, the BJP-led ruling camp did not accept this. After this, the opposition decided to hold elections. Congress' KC Venugopal said that if the opposition does not have a Deputy Speaker, then instead of supporting for the post of Speaker, we will field our own candidate. After this, K Suresh filed nomination for the post of Speaker on behalf of the opposition.

Om Birla vs K Suresh contest

BJP MP Om Birla filed his nomination for the post of Speaker of the 18th Lok Sabha. NDA has fielded Om Birla, India Block has fielded Congress MP K Suresh for the post of Speaker. At the same time, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that first it should be decided who will be the Deputy Speaker, then the Speaker will be supported, we condemn this kind of politics. The Speaker does not belong to the ruling party or the opposition, he belongs to the entire House, similarly the Deputy Speaker also does not belong to any party or group, he belongs to the entire House. There is no tradition of Lok Sabha that the Deputy Speaker should be from a particular party.

Chirag Paswan surrounded the opposition

Union Minister Chirag Paswan said that this is not the election of any party, the post of Speaker is for the entire House. Since independence, I do not remember that such an election has been held for this post. The way the opposition has played its role this time and the way the opposition has laid down conditions for agreeing to the post of Deputy Speaker. We were all ready to discuss this, but despite that, I do not think it is right to insist on it. At present, victory is certain, there is no doubt about it.
