The US House of Representatives witnessed chaos that had not occurred in nearly a century, as its opening session revealed great divisions among Republicans.

The House’s Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, who is seeking speakership, failed to win the position despite three rounds of balloting.

For the first time since 1923, the Council adjourned without choosing a new president.

It was expected that the meeting of the Council would be different, as the Republican Party secured control of it by a simple majority after the midterm elections that took place in the United States last November.
