Parliament card not issued for media personnel to cover the news directly owing to the Covid-19 pandemic

The 11th parliament will go into its ninth session on Sunday at 11pm. 

President Abdul Hamid called the session on August 19 exercising the power bestowed upon him as per Clause (1) of Article 72 of the Constitution.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this time the parliament card was not issued for media personnel to cover the news directly. So, the reporters will have to collect news from Sangshad TV like the previous two (7th and 8th) sessions.

Earlier, the last session (budget) was prorogued after only nine sittings due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country, which was the shortest budget session in the history of Bangladesh.

Five bills were passed during the eighth 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 shall not exceed a period of 60 days.
