Judiciary to Probe Majlis Complaint

“A letter issued by the Parliament (Majlis) Speaker, regarding the government's failure to implement legislation on the formation of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, will be seriously looked into,” Iran's Deputy Judiciary Chief Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi was quoted by khabaronline as saying on Tuesday.

“The file for the case has been forwarded to relevant judiciary units,” Raeisi added.

“The General Inspection Organization has the obligation to study the issue …and swiftly declare [its findings].”

Raeisi said the decisions that led to the government's failure to establish the new ministry were also prone to a legal prosecution.

On January 2, Majlis voted for the establishment of the new government ministry, bringing to 22 the number of cabinet ministers in President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's administration.

The new ministry was to be established by merging Iran's National Youth Organization and the Physical Education Organization.

The country's first Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi has criticized the legislation, arguing that it imposes further financial costs and responsibilities on the government.

Some Iranian lawmakers have suggested that the approved proposal is against the law.

Lawmaker Fatemeh Aliya believes that Iran's Fourth and Fifth Five-Year Development Plans (2005-2010 and 2010-2015) oblige the government to size down its ministers, while the establishment of an additional ministry runs counter to such plans as well as Article 44 of Iran's constitution, which institutes the privatization of many governmental functions.

Many officials and experts in the Iranian athletic organizations and societies have also voiced serious concerns about the merging of the two organizations, describing it as counterproductive.
