President Dr Arif Alvi has summoned a joint session of both the houses of parliament for Monday (today) at 4 pm.

The joint session will be the first formal sitting of the National Assembly after election and swearing-in of the new prime minister, speaker and the deputy speaker. Earlier, the session was scheduled to meet on September 13 but was postponed until September 17 due to the death of former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz.

President Arif Alvi will address the joint session. According to the constitutional provisions, the president has to address a joint session of parliament at the beginning of the first session of the National Assembly after a general election as well as the first sitting of the assembly in every parliamentary year.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, members of the federal cabinet and parliament, chief ministers, governors, ambassadors, diplomats, members of civil society and important personalities from different segments of life are likely to attend the joint session.

Special passes have been issued for the auspicious occasion. All leading entry and exit points would be strictly monitored and no vehicle would be allowed to enter the federal capital without a thorough search.
