MPs question Ahmadinejad, say are not convinced with answers

However, some MPs who had signed the motion to question the president said they were not convinced with the answers and some described the president’s remarks as “insulting”.

MPs said they will issue a statement in response to the president’s remarks.

The questions centered around the administration’s failure to fully disburse the funds allocated for the Tehran Metro, poor implementation of the subsidy reform plan, the dismissal of the former foreign minister while on a diplomatic mission in Senegal, and the president’s support for the promotion of the Iranian school of thought instead of the Islamic school of thought and his support for the deviant current.

According to the parliamentary approval the government had to allocate 2 billion dollars from the National Development Fund (formerly known as Forex Reserve Fund) for development of metro in Tehran and other large cities.

However, the president claimed “no money is left” in the fund to finance metro projects.

On the recent price hikes, the president said these are not related to the subsidy reform plan and that there are other reasons for sudden price rises.

“The reason behind these inflations is something else which I will explain about it at a proper time,” Ahmadinejad stated.

MP Mostafa Kavakebian said the president evaded answering questions.

“Actually, the president did not answer to any of serious and major questions” and all those who signed the motion to question the president were somehow “insulted”.

Kavakebian said the president denied that he did not attend his work for 11 days, asking and if this was so why all ministers visited the president and requested him to return to his work.

The MP also said the president claimed that Mottaki was not a diplomatic mission when he was fired.

The decision to summon the president to the Majlis was made on February 7 after MPs were not convinced by the answers provided by the president’s representatives at a meeting held to discuss the reasons behind irregularities by the administration.
