ISLAMABAD: The government has decided to hold an exclusive joint sitting of two houses of the Parliament for the presidential address, required by the constitutional provisions before commencement of the new parliamentary year towards end of the month.

The joint sitting is summoned by the president to deliver his address. The sitting is also adjourned sine die on the orders of the president immediately after conclusion of his address.

The ministry concerned is mulling over the schedule to hold the special session on September 19, which would be followed by a session of the National Assembly and Senate, separately for about two weeks. It is likely that the summary would be moved in a couple of days on return of National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervez Ashraf, who is on an official foreign visit.

The Aiwan-e-Sadr had not received any summary in this regard till Friday. Interestingly, the joint sitting of the parliament is currently in session and will have its meeting on Sept 22, which was adjourned two months ago, but it could not be availed for the presidential address, required by the Constitution.
