Lok Sabha is composed of representatives of the people chosen by direct election on the basis of the adult suffrage.

The total elective membership is distributed among the States in such a way that the ratio between the number of seats allotted to each State and the population of the State is, so far as practicable, the same for all States.
A recent landmark verdict by the Hon’ble Supreme Court established Right to Privacy as a Fundamental Right. Supreme Court, in its decision, stated that Right to Privacy is guaranteed to all the citizens of the country by virtue of it being enshrined in the sacred words of the constitution. However, the implications of this revolutionizing decision stand in a stark contrast with some currently enacted laws, the most significant of them being Aadhar’s legal status, Homosexuality and Abortion Laws. Furthermore, the Hon’ble Supreme Court has not presented a rigid legal definition of Right to Privacy, which makes its execution as a Right even more strenuous. A comprehensive and intensive deliberation on the definition of Privacy and its consequences as a Right is crucially needed, because this momentous decision can only reach its full extent when we carve the way to its effective implementation

The Assembly has adopted its own rules of procedure and elects its President for each session.
One of the greatest consequences of receding Arctic Ice will be the opening up of the Arctic Ocean to worldwide shipping - a transformation comparable to what the Panama and Suez Canals brought about. Developing international cooperation is crucial for the just and safe use of this opportunity, preventing it from turning into a massive ecological and economic disaster. The committee shall aim to formulate the trajectory of human cooperation in the Arctic, with regards to shipping in particular. Focused on the deadlock encompassing the Northwest Passage, an expansive plethora of debates shall erupt - from the unprecedented effect on international agreements elsewhere to the environmental paradox pertaining to the use of the passage as a maritime route; a seemingly simple discourse shall perhaps become one the most important negotiations we need to have as a society.
