Assemblyman Joe Lentol, a Brooklyn Democrat who is loyal to Speaker Sheldon Silver, said he remains willing to step into the top leadership post in the chamber should the embattled Silver resign.

Lentol told reporters before entering the closed-door Assembly Democratic conference that he would “honor my commitment” to step into the role of speaker.

Silver, for now, has given no indication he plans to resign. The speaker, who faces five counts of corruption charges, has not made a public appearance today, and does not appear to be inside the closed-door conference.

Lawmakers emerged from a five-hour meeting on Monday evening to announce Silver had lost the confidence of the majority conference.

Still, Lentol said it was not clear a full majority of lawmakers supported ending Silver’s tenure.

Lentol, the Assembly Codes Committee chairman, said he remains supportive of Silver.

“I still believe in the presumption of innocence,” he said.

Other lawmakers have not been so enthusiastic of keeping Silver in charge of the chamber.

Assemblyman Michael Blake, a Bronx Democrat, said no candidate appears to have gained an advantage in the race for speaker.

Several candidates — including Carl Heastie, Keith Wright, Joe Morelle and Denny Farrell — are believed to be in the mix.

Despite the complexity of the situation, lawmakers hoped to reach a conclusion today on who will lead the chamber.

Others, meanwhile, have indicated that the status of the talks remain up in the air.

“I expect nothing anymore,” said Westchester Assemblywoman Amy Paulin. “So we’ll see.”
