NDA Meeting at Rajnath Singh’s Residence

There is massive curiosity over who will be the next Lok Sabha Speaker. The responsibility of bringing a consensus regarding the name for Lok Sabha Speaker has been given to senior BJP leader and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh. A meeting was called on Tuesday at the residence of the Defense Minister with some key leaders from BJP and its allied parties to discuss candidature for the Lok Sabha Speaker post. There have been reports that BJP has sought suggestions from its allies but also left it to BJP. The allies, too, have washed off their hands to BJP. The final call will be of BJP.

Lok Sabha Sessions to Come

The first session of the 18th Lok Sabha will begin on June 24. In the session, newly-elected MPs would take oath who have been elected in the recently-held parliamentary elections. The election of the Speaker is scheduled to be held on June 26.

Candidates for Speakership

Some names are being floated for the post of Speaker. Speculations are rife that Om Bir twin might get re-elected as the Lok Sabha Speaker. Om Birla won from Kota Lok Sabha constituency in Rajasthan. Other names doing rounds are Purandeswari, Radha Mohan Singh and Bhartruhari Mahtab.

Profiles of theCandidates

Radha Mohan Singh: The current BJP National Vice President, he was a Union Minister sometime in the past and has been elected MP on an identical occasion for the sixth time.

Purandeswari: She happens to be a relation of TDP President Chandrababu Naidu. She is elected as the President of BJP in Andhra Pradesh and is an MP from Rajamahendravaram. Her nomination could also be sweetener with TDP.

*Bhartruhari Mahtab:* A BJP leader from Odisha; as the BJP has formed its government in Odisha this time, there are speculations that it might consider one of its leaders.

BJP and Allies’ Cooperation

In both parliamentary elections, in 2014 and 2019, BJP won with a majority of seats compared to other parties. This time BJP did not get that magic figure of the 272 seats alone and hence needs to seek support from other parties. Hence, BJP needs to consult its allies before making any decisions.

The final call will obviously be that of the BJP, in light of the inputs that come from its allied parties and the strategic value of the candidates for the Speaker’s post.
