New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party MLA Shoaib Iqbal has been appointed as the pro-tem Speaker of the Delhi Assembly by Lt-Governor Anil Baijal.

Iqbal, who has been elected for the sixth time from Matia Mahal constituency, will oversee the oath-taking of newly-elected members on February 24 when the first session of the Assembly begins.

 

The order appointing Iqbal was issued on Thursday night. As Iqbal, who is one of seniormost legislators, has been appointed as the pro-tem speaker, he is unlikely to become the speaker of the Delhi Legislative Assembly.

Sources said Ram Niwas Goel, who was the speaker in the previous Delhi Assembly, is likely to retain the post. A three-day session of the Delhi Assembly will begin from February 24 during which the Speaker will be chosen.
