Lindsay Hoyle is elected speaker of UK's House of Commons

Hoyle, who had been deputy speaker since 2010, was elected by lawmakers after four rounds of voting via secret ballot.

He will take over from John Bercow, who was accused by some of breaking convention and favoring those who wanted to stop the government's Brexit plans but feted by others who saw him as empowering parliament to challenge and scrutinize the executive.

"I will be neutral.

I will be transparent," 62-year-old Hoyle said after the result, adding: "This House will change but it will change for the better."
