The ninth session of the 11th Parliament will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday amid continuing wave of coronavirus pandemic.
Sources of the Parliament Secretariat say that one session will be short-lived.
President Abdul Hamid summoned the session on August 19 exercising the power of Clause (1) of Article 72 of the Constitution.
According to the Constitution, the period between the conclusion of one session and the first session of the Parliament at the next session is no longer than 60 days.
The last session, popularly known as the Budget Session, was prorogued after only nine sittings due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country.
That was the shortest budget session in the history of Bangladesh.
Five bills were passed during the eighth session of the 11th parliament.
Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, this time the Parliament Secretariat has not issued a Pass to the media to cover the news directly.
Reporters will have to collect news from Sangsad Bangladesh Television in the same way as the previous (7th and 8th) sessions.
