Sumitra Mahajan will be appointed as the Speaker on Friday. The first session of the next Lok Sabha was to begin on June 4 and end on June 11. Two days had been set aside for swearing in of the new members. President Pranab Mukherjee's address to a joint session of Parliament has been fixed for Monday.

Biju Janata Dal leader Jay Panda said that the party supported the proposal of making Sumitra Mahajan the new speaker.

The Union Cabinet, which met at 4 pm in the Prime Minister's South Block office on Tuesday, passed a resolution condoling the death of one of their colleagues. 

"In his untimely death, the nation has lost an experienced and visionary leader who was held in high esteem across the political spectrum," it said.

Pro-term speaker Kamal Nath adjourned the house till 11 am June 5, a few minutes after it commenced the sitting. 

The house observed a two-minute silence in the memory of Munde, who died on Tuesday following a car accident in the capital. 

Later, Secretary General P Sreedharan tabled the list of newly-elected members of the 16th Lok Sabha notified by the Election Commission. 

Kamal Nath sought the sense of the members on whether to take up the oath taking exercise tomorrow. As the members agreed, Nath postponed the exercise for Thursday. 

Kamal Nath was earlier sworn-in as the pro-tem speaker by President Pranab Mukherjee. 

Union Rural Development Minister Gopinath Munde's sudden and unfortunate death in a road accident in the capital on Tuesday has cast a shadow on the inaugural session of the 16th Lok Sabha. The swearing-in of the pro-tem Speaker will take place in the Rashtrapati Bhawan, or the Presidential Palace, at 10 am today. The Lok Sabha will, however, be adjourned after the customary references to the departed soul, union parliamentary affairs minister M Venkaiah Naidu told NDTV.

The flag will also be flown at half-mast during Mr Munde's funeral in his ancestral village, Parli, today. His body will be cremated with full state honours.
