New Delhi: Parliament is likely to have a short winter session starting from the first week of December in view of Assembly elections in five states.
The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, headed by Defence Minister AK Antony, is meeting on Monday to take a call on the dates for the session and related issues.
The meeting is taking place amid proposals to have the session from December 5 to 22.
