Nancy Pelosi is again speaker of the House, as Democrats retook control of the chamber for the first time in eight years, bringing divided government back to Washington.
The first woman to hold the position, Pelosi is now the first person to reclaim the speaker's gavel in more than six decades.
The California Democrat was elected with 220 votes over California Republican Kevin McCarthy, the new minority leader.
