Bangalore, June 3 (UNI) The maiden two-day session of the newly-elected 13th Karnataka Legislative Assembly, heralding the first-ever Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the South, will begin here tomorrow.

The state came under the President's rule in November last after the collapse of the seven-day-old Yeddyurappa-led BJP-JD(S) coalition government.

The President's rule was revoked following the BJP forming a new government after completion of the three-phased Assembly Elections in the state.

The new members would be administered oath by Protem Speaker K G Bopaiah. The second day would witness election of the new Speaker of the Assembly. Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will seek a confidence vote to prove majority of his government.

Mr Yeddyurappa was sworn in by Governor Rameshwar Thakur along with 29 ministers on May 30.

Senior party leader Jagadish Shettar, who was denied the ministerial berth, was likely to be made the new Speaker.
