Bengaluru: Speaker K.R. Ramesh Kumar who gave a landmark ruling disqualifying 17 Congress and JD(S) MLAs, resigned from his post after the trust vote of Yediyurappa.
Sources said the BJP has finalized former Speaker K.G. Bopaiah once again for the Speaker's post. Mr Bopaiah will file his nomination on Tuesday and an election will become necessary on Wednesday if the Congress and JD (S) put up a common candidate. Otherwise, he will be elected unopposed.
