New Delhi, Nov 20 (UNI) The two Houses of Parliament will resume their sessions from December 10.

For Lok Sabha, it will be resumption of the second part of the 14th session which was adjourned on October 24 after a week as most parties wanted it to be held after state assemblies' elections.

For Rajya Sabha, it will be resumption of its 241st session which, like Lok Sabha, too, was adjourned because of political parties preoccupation with state elections.

Assembly elections result will be out on December 8.

Lok Sabha Secretariat said the session of the House of people was likely to conclude on December 23. It is understood that the session of elders' House, too, would conclude likewise.

The first leg of the 14th Lok Sabha's 14th session was held on July 21-22 during which Prime Minister Manmohan Singh won the House's confidence vote on the issue of India's civil nuclear agreement with the United States. The nuke deal has since been signed by the two nations.

Since Lok Sabha's session beginning December 10 will be continuation of the one which had begun in July, no trust motion can be brought against the UPA government in the same session in which it had already won it once.

The four Left parties, whose withdrawal of support from the UPA government necessiated the trust vote, had unsuccessfully tried to bring a privilege motion against the Prime Minister during the October 17-24 Lok Sabha session, contending Dr Singh had commited breach of the House by concluding the nuclear agreement without taking the House into confidence as promised by him.
