The first session of the 17th Lok Sabha will be between 17 June and 26 July. The first session will include the process of taking oath by the members in the agenda. Proteem speakers only swear new members. On Tuesday, Bharatiya Janata Party of MP from Tikamgarh, and former Union Minister Virendra Kumar has been made a Protem Speaker in the 17th Lok Sabha, who will give oath to elected members. Regarding the practice of the Protem Speaker, seniority is given to the Parliament in the tradition. Virendra Kumar won the Sagar Lok Sabha constituency from Madhya Pradesh in the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th Lok Sabha elections.
Indeed, before the Virendra Kumar, the name of Santosh Kumar Gangwar and Maneka Gandhi was coming out, which has been elected eight times for the Lok Sabha. Although Gangwar has been made a minister on May 30, then he will not be eligible for the post of Protem Speaker. Maneka Gandhi has not been appointed as a minister.
After Gangwar and Maneka Gandhi, on the basis of seniority, BJP's Virendra Kumar, Samajwadi Party's Mulayam Singh Yadav come, both have been elected to the Lok Sabha for the seventh time. In this sense, Virendra Singh has been appointed the Proteem Speaker. On 11th June, the President will probably give his speech and in the remaining days of the session, there is a possibility of a debate during the thanks motion on the President's address, which the Prime Minister will answer.
Tell us, this session of Parliament will last for 40 days and there will be 30 meetings. During the first two days of the Parliament session, the newly elected members will be sworn in. The election of the Speaker will be on June 19. President Ramnath Kovind will address a joint session of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on 20th June, after which the discussion will be discussed on his thanks motion.
