After the formation of the new BJP-led government in the state, the session of the Assam Legislative Assembly will be held from May 21, 2021.
According to sources, the Assembly session will be held for three days.
During the session, a new State Assembly Speaker will be elected.
Former Rajya Sabha member Biswajit Daimari, who was elected to the Assembly on a BJP ticket from Paneri constituency Udalguri district in the recently-held Assam Assembly elections 2021, is likely to be the new Speaker.
Biswajit Daimary, a former Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) leader, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the election to the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC).
During the Assembly session, the MLAs, who were elected to the Assam Assembly, will be administered the oath of office and secrecy.
On Monday, newly-appointed chief minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma and 13 other ministers took oath at Srimanta Sankardeva Kalakshetra in Guwahati.
Jailed activist Akhil Gogoi and the president of newly-formed regional political party Raijor Dal, who won the Assam Assembly elections 2021 from the Sibsagar constituency, will also take oath as an MLA.
Akhil Gogoi was arrested in 2019 by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) under the amended UAPA (Unlawful Assembly Prevention Act) after he led anti-CAA protests in Assam.
An NIA court in Guwahati granted permission to Akhil Gogoi for taking oath as an MLA of the Assam Assembly.
In the 126-member Assam Assembly, now there are 60 members from the BJP, 29 from Congress, 16 from All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), 9 from Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), 6 from United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL), 4 from Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), 1 from CPI(M) and 1 from Raijor Dal.
