The meeting will also elect the Legislative Council Chairman in the evening session. Meanwhile, the state government issued notification for the election of the Speaker and Deputy Speaker. Earlier, since the appointment of Kiran Kumar Reddy as Chief Minister, Deputy Speaker Nadendla Manohar has been discharging responsibilities as Speaker of Assembly.

According to relevant sources, Deputy Speaker Nadendla Manohar will be elected as Speaker and Minister for Legislative Affairs D Sridhar Babu will be elected as Deputy Speaker. Sources say that Deputy Speaker Nadendla Manohar has already submitted his resignation from his post, thus paving the way for elevation to the Speaker’s post. 

Mr Sridhar Babu has reportedly called other party leaders seeking support for his candidature for the Deputy Speaker post. In this regard, Mr Sridhar Babu is likely to meet Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday evening, seeking his support for his candidature. Meanwhile, Dr A Chakrapani is likely to be re-elected as the Legislative Council Chairman. Sources say that the above names have the Congress High Command’s blessings.
