The maiden session of the 12th Maharashtra Assembly is likely to begin from 3rd November and may be a three-day affair. All the 277 newly-elected members would be sworn in during the first session of the 12th Maharashtra assembly that is likely to begin on November 3. This would also include an address by the governor SC Jamir. The strength of the House is 288 elected and a nominated member. Samajwadi Party’s Abu Asim Azmi has been elected from two Assembly constituencies. Also on the agenda is election of the speaker and if needed, a resolution moved by chief minister Ashok Chavan, that the house expresses its trust in the new government. If the opposition decided to put up a candidate for the speaker’s post, the house would anyway see a show of strength. In such an eventuality, it would be interesting to know which side independents favor, the sources said. The winter session of State Legislature is scheduled in Nagpur in December, the sources said. Meanwhile, the swearing-in of Ashok Chavan, deputy chief minister Chhagan Bhujbal and some other members of the new ministry is likely to take place soon. Bureau report – NMTV News.
