While two nominations were filed on Wednesday, ten were filed on Thursday in support of Joshi's candidature.
Besides the NDA constituents, the Nationalist Congress Party, Janata Dal-Secular and the Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh were the three opposition parties, which proposed and seconded the nomination of Joshi.
The Congress, Left parties, Samajwadi Party and the Rashtriya Janata Dal were among the prominent opposition parties on whose behalf there was no nomination backing Joshi.
Major opposition parties had taken the stand that since the deputy speakership had been given to the Opposition, it was for the Treasury benches to choose the speaker.
The government had on Wednesday announced the candidature of Joshi after Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pramod Mahajan held consultations with several opposition parties.
Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Home Minister Lal Kishenchand Advani had proposed and seconded the first nomination while Defence Minister and NDA convenor George Fernandes and Telugu Desam Party leader K Yerran Naidu had backed the second nomination, which were filed on Wednesday.
Harishankar Mahale (JD-S), M Master Mathan (BJP), Ashok Mohol and Laxman Patil (both NCP), and Prakash Ambedkar (BBM) proposed one nomination.
The NDA allies who nominated Joshi were Mamata Banerjee and Akbor Ali Khandoker (both Trinamool Congress), Omar Abdullah and Ali Mohammed Naik (both National Conference), Murasoli Maran and S S Palanimanickam (both Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam), Sharad Yadav and Ramjivan Singh (both Janata Dal-United), Braja Kishore Tripathy and Trilochan Kanungo (both Biju Janata Dal), C Krishnan (Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) and N T Shanmugham (Pattali
Makkal Katchi) and Anant Geete and Prakash Paranjpe (both Shiv Sena).
