Republican member Mike Johnson was the speaker of the American House of Representatives. In the poll held for that purpose, 220 votes were received in favour of 51-year-old Mike Johnson, while 209 were against him.
The American Congress consists of a House of Representatives and a Senate. Republicans hold the majority in the House of Representatives. President Joe Biden’s Democrats hold a majority in the Senate.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives had to choose a suitable candidate because Kevin Makati, who held that position, was removed by a vote of confidence on October 3. This was the first time that an American speaker was removed by a vote of confidence. Then there was a crisis in choosing a suitable speaker.
Mike Johnson, who has been appointed as the new speaker, says that he is a supporter of the former President of the United States, Donald Trump. Donald Trump, who is ready to run for the 2024 presidential election, said that he congratulated Johnson, who was elected as the new speaker. (CNN)
