The bill can be presented at an extra meeting of the Riksdag
It is noteworthy that ever since the central government has called an extra session of Parliament after the G-20 summit. Since then, there have been speculations that the Modi government may introduce a country, an election bill. This session of Parliament will last from September 18 to 22.
Let us tell you that the opposition parties are against the One Nation, One Election bill of the Modi government. In such a situation, it will be a big challenge for the Modi government to get this bill passed by both the Houses of Parliament, as this requires the consent of half of the states of the country. Now, only time will tell whether this bill will be tabled in the special session of Parliament or not.
