New Delhi: The first Parliament session is likely to start on June 18, a day after the Bakri-Id festival holiday, and it will start with the oath-taking by the newly elected members of the Lok Sabha, followed by the President's address to a joint session of both the Houses.

This will be a short duration session in which the Lok Sabha members will be electing the new Speaker. Andhra Pradesh BJP president Daggubati Purandeswari (65) is tipped to be the new Speaker. Her name has been pushed by TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu. She is the sister-in-law of Naidu and daughter of TDP founder late NT Rama Rao. She defected from Congress to BJP in 2014.

The session dates are not yet declared by President Murmu as it is to be decided whether the finance bill is also introduced in this session or a separate session called later for it, the government sources said.

Another official source claimed the 8-day session of Parliament will be held from June 24 to July 3 and the Lok Sabha speaker's election will be held on June 26 after the elected Lok Sabha members are sworn in.

The Lok Sabha Speaker's post is back in the minds of the people as the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) parties, both TDP and JD (U), are eyeing the chair. The TDP has the bitter experience of 1999 when its own Speaker GMC Balayogi allowed Gamang to vote despite he had been sworn in as the Odisha chief minister a few days go. His vote brought down then Vajpayee government.
