Nancy Pelosi will no longer lead the US Democrats in the House of Representatives.
After two decades at the helm of the Democrats, it’s over: Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (82) will no longer run for re-election as head of the parliamentary group in the House of Representatives. The 82-year-old man announced this at a Thursday session of parliament in Washington. “For me, it’s time for a new generation to lead the Democratic Caucus that I respect so much,” she said.
US Democrats lost their majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections. Now you have to appoint a new faction leader. Pelosi will remain a member of parliament. As Speaker of the House of Representatives, Pelosi previously ranked third in the nation after the US president and his vice president. The Democrat from California is considered a key liberal figure in American politics. In 2007, she became the first woman in the country to hold the position of president of the chamber for the first time.
The brutal attack on her husband Paul Pelosi recently overshadowed the US election campaign. A few days before the so-called midterms, an attacker broke into the couple’s home in San Francisco. The attack was aimed at Pelosi herself, who was not at home at the time. (SDA)
