Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has announced her resignation after the victory of the Republicans.
According to the report of a foreign news agency, the opposition party, the Republican Party, has won the majority in the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections of the United States on Thursday.
In the mid-term elections, the Republicans won 218 seats in the House of Representatives, while the ruling Democratic Party won 211 seats.
On the other hand, on Sunday, US President Joe Biden’s Democratic Party won control of the Senate after winning the mid-term elections.
After the Republican majority in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, the first woman speaker of the United States from California, gave a speech in the House of Representatives.
During the speech, she announced that she will not retire from the House of Representatives and will continue to represent San Francisco, as she has for the past 35 years.
“It is time for me to lead a new generation of Democrats that I deeply respect and I am extremely grateful that so many members are willing to take on this responsibility,” he said.
It should be noted that Nancy Pelosi has played an important role in legislative matters during the terms of two Democratic presidents in Congress.
He served as the Speaker of the House of Representatives from 2007 to 2011 under former President Barack Obama and from 2019 to 2022.
According to reports, the Democrats’ likely candidate to replace Nancy Pelosi in the House of Representatives will be New York’s Hakeem Jeffries, who will be the first black lawmaker.
House of Representatives Minority Leader Kevin Mitharthi has been nominated by Republicans for the post of Speaker, while the decision on the Speaker of the US House of Representatives will be made on November 30.
