Monsoon Session Of Parliament may begin on July 12, Days before presidential election


The monsoon session of Parliament may start for a month from July 12, five days before the date of President’s election in which more than 776 MPs are qualified to vote.

Sources said that the government has different proposals on dates for the monsoon session, which is usually convened towards the finish of July and carries on till August end.

This time, they stated, the session was slightly being advanced because of the Presidential election in which MPs and MLAs are voters. A session around then will ensure that all the MPs are in Delhi, where they usually vote in Parliament. A MP can likewise vote in his home state where MLAs generally vote.

It is probably that the session may start on July 12 and end around August 10-11, the sources said.

The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs is probably going to meet in the coming days to take a final call on the dates, the sources said.
