Ahead of the election for Maharashtra speaker's post, the Shiv Sena and Congress withdrew their candidates on Wednesday. The move paved way for the Bharatiya Janata Party's Haribhau Bagde to be elected unopposed.


Bagde is a five-time MLA from Aurangabad district.


The election for the speaker's post were held around 11 AM. Shiv Sena had nominated Vijay Auti and Congress Varsha Gaikwad.


Meanwhile, Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has told his MLAs to vote against the BJP government as he does not trust the party. Sources said Thackeray is unwilling to accept any proposal from any other leader but BJP chief Amit Shah.


Even Shah urged Thackeray to support the BJP government in the trust vote assuring him that the power-sharing issue will be resolved then.

Sources said that the Sena is still stuck to its stand of deciding on power-sharing before the trust vote. "Uddhav Thackeray had told Amit Shah that his party was willing to be a part of the government provided they sort out the power sharing formula before the floor test," sources added.

The Devendra Fadnavis government needs 144 MLAs to prove its majority on the floor of the House and claims support of 138 MLAs including independents and smaller parties. The Nationalist Congress Party has already offered unconditional outside support to the BJP.
