JS goes into session today

The Jatiya Sangsad goes into its 17th session today after a 58-day recess.

Before the House resumes at 5:00pm, the business advisory committee of parliament will meet at 4:00pm, with Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair, to fix the duration and businesses of the session.

The new session is expected to witness a lively debate on the Supreme Court's observation on the 16th amendment verdict.

A seven-member SC bench, led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, on July 3 upheld the High Court verdict that declared the 16th constitutional amendment illegal.

Parliament had passed the 16th amendment on September 17, 2014 empowering the House to remove SC judges for incapacity and misconduct.

President Abdul Hamid on August 22 called the 17th session of parliament.

The last session (4th budget session of the 10th parliament) of the Jatiya Sangsad was prorogued on July 13 this year after 24 sittings.
