This is the 4th session of parliament this year

The 9th session of the current parliament is set to begin on September 6 after a 59-day recess, as the budget session prorogued on July 9. 

President Abdul Hamid summoned the session exercising the power bestowed upon him as per Clause (1) of Article 72 of the constitution, according to a parliament handout issued on Wednesday. 

The 9th session of the 11th parliament – 4th session in 2020 – is scheduled to start at 11am on September 6. 

Earlier on July 9, the last session, which was for the national budget of 20-21 fiscal year, was prorogued after only nine sittings due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country. It was the shortest budget session in Bangladesh’s history.

Only two days were allotted for general discussion on the budget proposal, while one day for the discussion on the supplementary budget of 2019-20 fiscal year. 

Only 18 lawmakers joined the discussions. 

Five bills were passed during the 8th session of the 11th parliament. 

According to the constitution, the gap between the end of one session and the first sitting of parliament in the next session should not exceed a period of 60 days.
