Iranian MPs not completely convinced by President's answers

Politics - Iranian lawmakers were not convinced by most of the answers given by President Hassan Rouhani to their questions about current economic situation.

The President attended Majlis to answer five questions raised by 82 out of 290 Iranian lawmakers about his government's failure to control goods and currency smuggling, continuation of banking sanctions, unemployment rate, economic depression and increase in Forex rate.

The MPs were only contented by President Rouhani's answer about the banking sanctions while his answers to other questions failed to win the lawmakers approval.

Earlier in the day, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani hailed President Rouhani's accountability to the nation’s representatives calling it 'highly valuable'.

'It is highly valued by the nation when it sees that the top executive official stays accountable before the people,' Larijani said.

Meanwhile, President Rouhani in his address to the MPs said that his presence in the Majlis and being accountable to the people was indicative of his government’s strong point.

“Today is a great day for the country's democracy and for religious democracy as accountability is not a weak point for a government but instead is considered as its strong point,' said the President.
