But it is known that since the last few days, there has been a lot of excitement about who will be elected as the Speaker of the ap Assembly. Meanwhile, it seems that it has already been fixed that tdp senior leader Ayyannapatra is going to be elected as the Speaker of the ap Assembly. It should be said that today this matter is officially going to be known to everyone. At the same time, there is a possibility that a key leader in the janasena Party will get the post of Deputy Speaker. But the role of the Speaker is very important in legislatures. Everyone is showing interest to know what are the powers of this speaker.
 The Speaker's responsibilities are to ensure that there is no confusion in the house and that the activities go smoothly. But if any mla commits defection from the party, then the speaker has the authority to disqualify those members. If any mla violates the rules, action can be taken against them. If necessary, the Speaker has the power to suspend the House. And when any resolution is passed in the house, if there are equal votes on both sides, then the Speaker's vote becomes crucial to get the resolution approved. It is also noteworthy that the speaker decides the agenda of the assembly meetings. That is why the speaker has the first priority in the assembly. It should be said that the Speaker has similar powers not only in the assembly but also in the Lok Sabha.
