Q. How are the Speaker and the Dy. Speaker of the Lok Sabha removed from their offices?

Ans. The Speaker or the Dy. Speaker of the Lok Sabha is not removed from his office like the removal of the President through the process of impeachment. The Council of States does not have any role in the removal of the Speaker or Dy. Speaker of the Lok Sabha. This power rests with the Lok Sabha only. According to the provisions of Article 94 a member holding office as Speaker or Dy. Speaker of the Lok Sabha—
(a) shall vacate his office if he ceases to be a member of the house of the people;
(b) may at any time. by writing under his hand addressed, if such member is the Speaker, t the Dy. Speaker and if such member is Dy. Speaker. to the Speakers resign his office; and  (c) may be removed from his office by a resolution of the House of the People passed by a majority of all the then members of the House. No resolution for the purpose of removal of the Speaker or the Dy. Speaker, shall be moved unless at-least fourteen days’ notice has been given of the intention to move the resolution.
