phoenix - Jon Kyl, once one of the most influential Republicans in the US Senate, returns to Capitol Hill. He succeeds the late John McCain, reports the newspaper The Arizona Republic. Governor Doug Ducey will present the 76-year-old Kyl Tuesday at a press conference in Phoenix, after having informed McCain's widow Cindy and other key politicians of the decision.

Kyle, who spent eighteen years with McCain in the Senate on behalf of Arizona, retired in 2013. He will immediately fly to Washington and, according to a spokesman, will remain in office until the end of the year. The official deadline ends in 2020 because it was too short a day to put the vacant seat on the ballot paper for the parliamentary elections in November.
