Canadian House of Commons members on Thursday elected Liberal Representative Anthony Rota as speaker of the House, which includes a liberal minority government.

Anthony Rota outperformed four other candidates in this morning’s vote, including Liberal Party member Jeff Reagan, who was speaker of the last session of the parliament and wanted to stay in office.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and opposition leader Andrew Scheer dragged Rota to the chair of the House, according to tradition. Ontario MP thanked his colleagues for choosing him to be speaker of the House.

“I am here to serve you and to make sure that everything is going well for all of us, so that we can manage the work of the parliament and make sure it succeeds”, he said. “My promises are to be fair, to be non-partisan and to do my best in this council, at your service”, he said.

For his part, Trudeau welcomed on Wednesday the election of Anthony Rota as the new speaker of the House of Commons, noting in a statement in this regard that Canadians expect MPs to work together to address the most important issues.

The role of the President of the Council is very important, as it impartially interprets parliamentary rules and traditions. The Speaker is also responsible for overseeing the administration and management of the House of Commons and for performing ceremonial and diplomatic functions.

“Our colleague, Anthony Rota, is widely recognized and respected as a skilled parliamentarian. With today’s vote, members of parliament showed every confidence in his ability to oversee the House of Commons in a fair and impartial manner. I congratulate President Rota on his election and look forward to working with him – and all members House of Representatives – to continue to bring real and positive change to Canadians. I also thank Jeff Reagan for his exceptional service to the House as President over the past four years and his hard work to protect and promote Canadian democracy”, said Trudeau.
