U.S. Republican Party Members Engage in Battle for Speaker of the House of Representatives

Original title: Many members of the U.S. Republican Party have joined the battle for Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the decision will be decided by voting as soon as the 24th.

China News Service, October 23 (Xinhua) According to comprehensive foreign media reports, with the chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and right-wing conservative congressman Jim Jordan withdrawing from the speaker’s race, more and more people in the Republican Party are participating in a new round of speakership battles. Many candidates joined in before the deadline, and at least six people have announced that they are running for the nomination of Speaker of the House of Representatives.

According to US media reports, currently, House Majority Whip and Minnesota Republican Rep. Tom Emmer has announced his candidacy. He has received the support of former House Speaker McCarthy, a California Republican.

The report pointed out that since the historic removal of Republican former Speaker McCarthy on October 3, the House of Representatives has been in a paralyzed state of “leaderless”. The deadlock over the delay in electing a Speaker of the House of Representatives has prevented the House of Representatives from functioning normally, and lawmakers have been unable to take measures to deal with a series of major domestic and international issues, such as reaching an agreement to extend federal funding that expires on November 17, and considering providing funding to Israel or Ukraine. Provide assistance etc.

Former House Speaker McCarthy said in an interview with NBC News on the 22nd that “now is not the time to play games.” “This is embarrassing for the Republican Party and embarrassing for the entire country. We need to Solve this problem as soon as possible.”

According to reports, the new speaker must be voted by the entire House of Representatives, and his term will end in January 2025. House Democrats are expected to nominate House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries.

The Wall Street Journal stated that the Republican Party plans to hold a candidate forum on the evening of the 23rd and conduct a vote to determine the candidate as soon as the 24th.
