US Democrat Nancy Pelosi relinquishes leadership of the House of Representatives

Following the midterm elections held in the United States, US politician Nancy Pelosi (82) decided not to stand for election and consequently relinquish leadership of the Democratic Party in the Congress Chamber. It was "time for a new generation to lead the Democratic Group, which I respect so much," the 82-year-old said in an emotional speech, which she also received applause from some Republicans. However, Pelosi will continue to serve as an MP.

In the midterm elections, the Democrats lost their majority in the House of Representatives to the Republicans, as expected. Pelosi, who ranked third in the state ranking behind US President Joe Biden (79) and Vice President Kamala Harris (58) as its chair, was the first woman to assume the office in 2007.
