The House of Representatives was due to reconvene this Thursday – a new vote on chairing the House of Representatives was expected. Previously, there had been negotiations behind the scenes. However, it was still completely open as to whether McCarthy had managed to unite his opponents in the party behind him. He was opposed by ardent supporters of former President Donald Trump in previous votes.

According to reports, McCarthy has once again taken a big step towards his party opponents in order to secure their votes and break the deadlock. The 57-year-old is said to have even agreed to further lower the hurdles for removing a chairman from the House of Representatives.
