The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeem (AIMIM) MLA Akbarudin Owaisi on Saturday took oath as pro-tem speaker of the newly-elected Telangana State Assembly. Governor Tamilsai Soundararajan took the oath to him at Raj Bhavan at a ceremony attended by Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy and speaker of previous assembly Pocharam Srinivas Reddy.

Owaisi who took the oath in the name of Allah, will later administer oath to newly elected members of the House. Ministers D.Sridhar Babu, Tummala Nageshwara Rao, Seethakka , former minister and BRS leader T Harish Rao and other attended the ceremony. According to a notification issued by Governor, Owaisi will perform the duties of the speaker till a speaker is elected under Article 178 of the constitution of India.

Being the senior most member of the assembly, the AIMIM legislator has been appointed as the Pro-tem speaker. In 2018, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan was made protem speaker. In the just concluded state elections he was elected from Chandrayangutta constituency in Hyderabad for a sixth consecutive term. This is the second consecutive time that a MLA of AIMIM has been appointed as Protem speaker. In 2018, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan was made protem Speaker.

The Pro-tem Speaker serves a temperory role, officiating the assembly session until the-elected members are sworn in and a speaker is elected. Once the assembly speaker is elected, the pro-tem speaker’s duties end, which marks the beginning of regular legislative activities under the new leadership.

Telanagana BJP today boycotted the oath ceremony for the newly elected MLAs, objecting to AIMIM’s Akbaruddin Owaisi being appointed Protem Speaker of the state assembly. The Pro-tem speaker is tasked with administering oath to the new legislators.

BJP MLA T Raja Singh, who won from Goshamahal in last month’s assembly elections, said in a video message that he would never take oath as long as he is alive in front of AIMIM. He said he would take oath only after a full term speaker is appointed.
