Nancy Pelosi has not been fired. She announced on Thursday (November 17) that she will relinquish her leadership post after leading House Democrats for two decades, building a legacy as one of the most powerful and polarizing figures in American politics.

Nancy Pelosi, who twice led Democrats to power in the House and has been a central figure in the major legislative accomplishments of the Obama and Biden administrations, disclosed her plans in a carefully choreographed midday speech on the House Floor a day after Republicans clinched control of the chamber.

Her decision represented a transformative moment for the House of Democrats, and it set off a rapid and long-anticipated shift in the top ranks of Democratic leadership-now dominated by a trio of octogenarians-towards a younger group that has been waiting in wings.

Moments after Pelosi ended her speech, Representative Steny H Hoyer of Maryland, said in a letter to his colleagues that he too would refrain from seeking a leadership position in the next Congress.
