CONSTITUTION OF INDIA
The Constitution of India is the fountainhead from which all our laws derive their authority and force. This is next article in the series on constitutional provisions in order to aid our readers in understanding them.

 

93. "The Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of the People.- The House of the People shall, as soon as may be, choose two members of the House to be respectively Speaker and Deputy Speaker thereof and, so after as the office of Speaker or Deputy Speaker becomes vacant, the House shall choose another member to be Speaker or Deputy Speaker, as the case may be."

In the Constitutional Adviser's Draft Constitution of 30 th October, 1947, clause 63(6) read:

"The House of the People shall, as soon as may be, choose two members of the House to be respectively Speaker and Deputy Speaker thereof, and, so often as the office of Speaker or Deputy Speaker becomes vacant, the House shall choose another member to be Speaker or Deputy Speaker, as the case may be."

The Drafting Committee adopted the above as Article 76 of its Draft Constitution of 21 st February, 1948. The Constituent Assembly adopted it on 19 th May, 1949. At the revision stage the Article was renumbered and it became Article 93 of the Constitution.

As per this Article the Lok Sabha elects two of its members as Speaker and Deputy Speaker respectively. When the office of the Speaker is vacant, the Deputy Speaker performs the duties of the Speaker's office. If the office of the Deputy Speaker is also vacant, duties of the Speaker shall be performed by such member of the House, as the President may appoint.
