One of the longest sessions in the history of the British Parliament ended early Tuesday morning in extraordinary scenes, with protests from placard-waving lawmakers and attempts to prevent the Speaker of the House from leaving his chair.
Mr Kawczynski was admonished by Mr Bercow as he heckled the Scottish National Party's leader, Ian Blackford, in the House of Commons.
"He has to keep proceedings going, and there was a lot of noise, I was disagreeing with the leader of the SNP".
In a statement in the House of Commons Mr Bercow said if MPs voted for an election later tonight he would stand down.
The Commons Speaker has announced he will step down from his role when the current Parliament comes to an end.
He continued: "Least disruptive because that date will fall shortly after the votes on the Queen's Speech expected on October 21 and 22".
During his ten-year term, he has survived an outcry over expense claims - including costly use of official cars and overseas trips - and has faced allegations of bullying from former members of staff, which he has denied.

For the Government, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove said it was clear Mr Bercow loved the House of Commons and democracy, adding: "Your commitment to your principles and to your constituents is unwavering and an example to others".
Bercow has enhanced Britain's reputation overseas as a thriving democracy and others look on wishing they had a Speaker like him to invigorate their own parliaments.
Speaking after the Strangford MP had spoken on behalf of the DUP in wishing Mr Bercow well, the Speaker said: "Colleagues, I think you'll forgive me if I say this very publicly to the honourable gentleman, the Member for Strangford".
Mr Bercow made a tearful announcement on Monday that he would be stepping down at the end of the month, firing the starting gun for candidates to become his successor.
In general elections, Sir Lindsay would still stand for election in Chorley.
This is because it is considered essential that the Speaker be seen as an impartial presiding officer within the House of Commons.
Mr Hoyle also paid tribute to Mr Bercow's "dedication and service", saying: "He is a champion of LGBT and BAME rights and we now have a more diverse and representative House than ever before".
