Naidu may get a chance to become pro-tem speaker

Naidu may get a chance to become pro-tem speaker

Telugu Desam Nara Chandrababu Naidu has got a rare opportunity to create a record, but it is not clear if he will take it up.

Mr Naidu has been Chief Minister thrice and Opposition leader twice. There is a third, and important, seat in the Assembly, that of the Speaker which Mr Naidu has never occupied in his four-decade career. He now gets that chance.

In a new Assembly, the most senior legislator is appointed pro-tem Speaker, who swears in all the legislators and oversees the election of the Speaker.

Mr Naidu is the senior-most legislator in the House. If he does not accept it, TD MLA Ganta Srinivasa Rao is next in line.
