Republican Congressman Steve Scalise has dropped out of the race to become Speaker of the House just a day after his party nominated him, APA reports citing BBC.

Mr Scalise, 58, had struggled to gain enough votes to secure an overall majority in the chamber.

The announcement came after a last-minute meeting of Republicans in the House of Representatives on Thursday.

It is unclear who the party will now nominate for the position.
