Majlis Board Opposed to Questioning Ahmadinejad

On Monday, a motion signed by 100 Iranian lawmakers to question President Ahmadinejad was presented to the Majlis Presiding Board by Principalist parliamentarian Ali Motahari.

“The issue of questioning the president was reviewed and discussed in the Presiding Board,” legislator Hossein Sobhani-Nia said on Tuesday.

“The Presiding Board's view is to convince friends [lawmakers] not to question [Ahmadinejad],” Sobhani-Nia added.

Sobhani-Nia went on to say that the Presiding Board has decided to discuss the motion with the lawmakers who have signed the scroll.

If the petition is according to the Constitution and the lawmakers insist on questioning the incumbent president, the petition will be forwarded to Majlis commissions to be reviewed, the member of the Presiding Board further explained.

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.

Issues such as the government's delay in introducing the Minister of Sports and Youth as well as refusing to implement the Tehran Metro law will be among the topics the Iranian chief executive will be questioned about.

Based on the Article 89 of the Constitution, if Majlis gives three written warnings that the government has violated the law, the president or his ministers can be impeached.
