MP Insistent on Motion Calling for President to Be Questioned

This came amid reports that Iranian MPs have run into a dispute over their plan to question Ahmadinejad, one week after a petition to summon the president to Parliament was presented to the speaker.

Conservative MP Ruhollah Hosseinian told Fars News Agency that Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, is “not satisfied” with the MPs' efforts to summon the president.

On June 26, Motahari, a chief instigator of the move to question the president, presented the Presiding Board of Parliament with a petition signed by 100 MPs. A critic of Ahmadinejad, Motahari added that the motion aimed to “clarify certain ambiguities” in the workings of the administration.

The motion cites the president’s delay in nominating a Sports and Youth Minister, the delays in forwarding funds for the Tehran subway system, and the administration’s refusal to implement ratified cultural legislation.

Hosseinian said Saturday that some of the MPs who have signed the petition will withdraw their names because they do not feel it is “in the interest” of the country to summon the president at this time.

The Presiding Board of Parliament previously made a similar announcement, saying the motion to question the president is not in the best interests of the country. The board said it would speak with Motahari to seek an end to the motion.
