The ninth session of the 11th Parliament began with Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair on Sunday.


The parliament session began at 11:05 am after a 59-day recess as the last (budget) session was prorogued on July 9 last, reports UNB.


Health protocols are being maintained since the session resumed amid the Covid-19 pandemic. 


President Abdul Hamid on August 19 summoned the 9th session (4th session of 2020) of the 11th parliament exercising the power bestowed upon him as per Clause (1) of Article 72 of the Constitution.


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 Bangladesh history.


According to the Constitution, the gap between the end of a session of Parliament and the first sitting of the next session shall not exceed a period of 60 days.
