Om Birla to be NDA’s nominee for LS Speaker post: Sources (lead)

New Delhi, June 18 (IANS) Om Birla, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Rajasthan, will be the NDA’s nominee for Lok Sabha Speaker’s post, sources said on Tuesday.

The election for the Speaker’s post is scheduled for Wednesday.

The Opposition has not yet announced its candidate. Tuesday is the last day for nominations.
