Winter Session of Parliament Scheduled for December 4-22

Parliament Winter Session

The winter session of the Indian Parliament is scheduled to take place from December 4 to December 22, according to the announcement made by Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi on November 9. This session is expected to involve substantial legislative discussions and address key topics on the parliamentary agenda.

Parliament Agenda: 15 Meetings Planned

A total of 15 meetings are set for the winter session to discuss various national issues, including crucial legislative matters.

Focus on the Bill Regarding the Chief Election Commissioner

A significant agenda item is a bill concerning the appointment of the Chief Election Commissioner and Election Commissioners. The proposed bill suggests elevating their status to that of a Cabinet Secretary, currently on par with a Supreme Court judge.

Opposition’s Apprehensions on the Bill

The proposed bill has sparked concerns among opposition parties. They argue that it signals the government’s attempt to exert more control over these constitutional institutions. The potential consequences of this bill are expected to fuel intense debates during the session.

Delayed Start Linked to Assembly Elections

Unlike the usual schedule, the winter session will kick off in early December instead of the third week of November. This delay is attributed to assembly elections in five Indian states – Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram, and Telangana. The session will commence after the December 3 announcement of election results, showcasing how the electoral landscape impacts parliamentary scheduling.
