The president of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has announced this Thursday that she will not aspire to lead the Democratic Party during the next legislature, where the Republicans will have the parliamentary majority. Thus closes a stage in American politics. Pelosi, 82, will keep her seat, but after two decades at the helm of the House, she is leaving a position she redefined after becoming the first and only woman to hold it in 2007.
In an emotional speech, Pelosi told the House of Representatives this Thursday that “the time has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic group that I respect so much.” The Democratic leader has announced her withdrawal from the presidency of the Chamber just a few days after knowing the results of the legislative elections on November 8, in which the Democrats have managed to prevent the advance of the conservatives. This Wednesday it was confirmed that the Republicans had taken control of the majority in the House of Representatives, although with a margin well below expectations.
