Karthikeyan said that he had already conveyed his decision to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, KPCC president VM Sudheeran and senior leader AK Antony.

He said he would tender his resignation once the party leadership accepted his request.

Two days' ago Karthikeyan had met Sudheeran to make it clear that he was keen to quit as Speaker on conclusion of the monsoon session of the House on Thursday.
The move has also triggered speculation of a reshuffle of the Congress nominees in the UDF ministry with Karthikeyan getting accommodated in the cabinet with an important portfolio.

However, Chandy or Sudheeran have so far refrained from making any commitment in this regard.
