Majlis lawmakers submit bid to question president

The petition was presented to the Majlis Deputy Speaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar during an open session of the Majlis on Sunday after 73 lawmakers signed it, Mehr news agency reported.

The motion will be referred to the Majlis Special Commissions after the number of lawmakers signing the petition meets the required quorum.

In June, a motion signed by 100 Iranian legislators to question President Ahmadinejad was presented to the Majlis Presiding Board by principlist lawmaker Ali Motahari.

However, a member of the Majlis Presiding Board, Hossein Sobhani-Nia, said on October 24 that the petition to question President Ahmadinejad is no longer on the Majlis agenda since a number of legislators withdrew their signatures from the petition.

According to the Article 88 of the Iranian Constitution, the president must appear before Majlis within a month of being summoned, unless lawmakers decide to withdraw the motion.
