New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Jagdish Mukhi has declined to be the pro-tem Speaker of Delhi Assembly.
The decision in this regard was taken by Mukhi after he received a letter from Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung about his appointment as a pro-tem Speaker in Delhi Assembly.
According to reports, neither Mukhi nor any BJP MLA will become the pro-tem Speaker.
The pro-tem Speaker administers oath to all newly-elected MLAs.
Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government will seek a vote of confidence on January 3 on the floor of Delhi Assembly.
