Questioning Ahmadinejad benefits Iran

“It's a useful move in general. It will create a greater understanding between the government and the parliament. It's a dialogue between the two parties,” he said.

“These legal tools pave the way for greater participation of people and parliament in current affairs,” Majlis Vice Speaker Mohammad-Hassan Aboutorabi-Fard said.

Mostafa Kavakebian, another lawmaker, added that while this is the first time in the 33-year history of the Islamic Republic that Parliament has decided to question the president, he doesn't believe that it “is going to be a big deal or even a serious blow to the establishment.”

Some Iranian lawmakers, however, disagree with the decision to summon the president, citing the timing of the motion as a major concern.

“I don't think it is the right time to question the president. This is because sensitive developments are unfolding across the region. Just as importantly Iran has been the main engine of these developments,” Lawmaker Parviz Sorouri said.

Lawmaker Farhad Bashiri also cautioned against “politicizing the motion”

On Sunday, Iranian lawmakers submitted a motion, signed by 73 members, to the Majlis Presiding Board to summon Ahmadinejad to the legislative body.

The motion cites the president's alleged administrative irregularities and the alleged involvement of government officials in the 2.6-billion-dollar banking scam. The Iranian president has, however, rejected any infractions.

According to 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.
