Bhubaneswar: As newly-elected MLAs of 16th Odisha Assembly took oath and were sworn-in over the last two days, the full House is now set to elect the Speaker. The elections will be held at 11 am on Saturday when the Vidhan Sabha session commences.

State Parliamentary Affairs Minister Bikram Keshari Arukh informed, "As per Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s recommendation that was seconded by me, a notice was submitted to Assembly Secretary today recommending the name of Digapahandi MLA Surya Narayan Patro for the post of Odisha Assembly Speaker."

Since no other name has been submitted to the Assembly Secretary, Patro is expected to be elected uncontested. It is notable to mention here that Barachana MLA Amar Satpathy is the pro-tem Speaker till the elections for the post are held.
