John Bercow Expected To Be Re-Elected As Speaker

Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow is expected to be re-elected, despite a small opposition of Conservative politicians who want him to stand down. Mr Bercow, who successfully defended his seat of Buckingham in the general election, will rely on the members of parliament to accept him as the new Parliament's Speaker. If there are enough MPs who object to his re-admission as Speaker, he will face a secret ballot in the division lobbies. Nadine Dorries, a Tory backbencher is leading the group against Mr Bercow, because she claims he has failed to uphold the Speaker's "great tradition of authority, control and impartiality". However, Mr Bercow has the support of the Prime Minister, David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
