The first female speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has announced her resignation as the leader of the Democratic Party.
Nancy Pelosi has announced that she will step down when Republicans take control of the House in January, and it’s time for a new generation of Democrats to lead the way.
According to foreign media, Nancy Pelosi, who has led the party for 20 years, said that she will not retire from the House and will continue to represent San Francisco.
According to American media, the Democrats will likely choose New York Representative Hakeem Jeffries to replace Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
American media say that the election of Hakeem Jeffries, the first black person to lead the party by Congress, will be a potentially historic move.
On the other hand, Republicans have started preparing to appoint a speaker from their own party, if this happens, President Joe Biden will face serious difficulties in passing legislation.
