US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy Ousted By His Party In Historic Vote

Kevin McCarthy was ousted from his role as speaker of the US House of Representatives Tuesday.

Washington:

Kevin McCarthy was axed from his role as speaker of the US House of Representatives Tuesday in a ruthless overthrow by far-right Republican lawmakers furious over his cooperation with Democrats.

For the first time in its 234-year history, the House backed a resolution “to vacate the office of the speaker” with a 216-210 vote setting the stage for an unprecedented contest to replace McCarthy a year before the presidential election.
