The government and ruling camp are planning not to extend the current extraordinary session of the Diet, which is scheduled to end on Dec. 9, sources in the administration said Thursday.

Enacting important bills, including one to ratify a recently signed Japan-U.S. trade agreement, without extending the session is possible, the sources said. An extension is also unnecessary, they added, because the ruling bloc has given up on passing a controversial bill to amend the national referendum law during the ongoing session.
