Lok Sabha Speaker: After the conclusion of the Lok Sabha election results, the government has once again been formed in the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Along with PM Modi, a total of 72 leaders have taken oath as ministers. Now the next step will be the new session of Parliament where all the newly elected MPs will take oath. Meanwhile, the date for the election of the Speaker of the Lok Sabha has also come out. Let us know when the election of the Lok Sabha Speaker is going to be held.

When will the Speaker be elected?

According to the latest update, the election for the new Speaker of the Lok Sabha is going to be held on June 26. Let us tell you that the new Parliamentary Affairs Minister of the country Kiren Rijiju had recently shared information related to the date of the start of the new session of Parliament on the social media platform X.

Parliament session will start from June 24

The new Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju has said that the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha will run from June 24 to July 3. In this, new members will be sworn in. The Speaker will be elected. The President's address will be discussed. Kiren Rijiju said that the newly elected members will be sworn in in the first three days of the session. Also, the Speaker of the House will be elected.

When will the President's address be held?

The President of India Draupadi Murmu will address a joint meeting of both the Houses on June 27 and present the roadmap of the new government for the next five years.

TDP and JDU eyeing the post of Speaker

Om Birla, who was the Speaker during the 17th Lok Sabha, is the main contender for this post. There is talk that both the Telugu Desam Party and the Janata Dal (United) are eyeing this post. The names of many TDP leaders, including GM Harish Balayogi, son of former Speaker GMC Balayogi, are in discussion for this post, but no official statement has come from the party in this regard.

A new name has been added to the list of potential candidates, that of BJP's Andhra Pradesh president Daggubati Purandeswari. She is also the sister of TDP leader N. Chandrababu Naidu's wife and therefore some people are considering her as the unanimous candidate. Purandeswari, daughter of former Andhra Pradesh CM and TDP founder NT Rama Rao, reached the Lok Sabha on a Congress ticket in 2004 and 2009 and has returned as a BJP MP from Rajahmundry this time.

Suspense continues over the Speaker

On the other hand, it is important for the BJP to have a Speaker from its own party, as it plays an important role in the House when the government faces a crisis. In case of defection, the Speaker also has the right to disqualify a member.

The BJP has won only 240 seats in this Lok Sabha election and has crossed the majority limit of 272 with the support of allies. The total seats of the NDA are 293. After the election of the new Speaker, the President will address the House on June 27 and his address will be delivered. The Economic Survey is likely to be presented on July 3. After this, the full budget is expected to be presented on July 22.
