Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in a statement released on Sunday hailed massive participation of people in the local and presidential elections held in Iran on May 19.

The speaker referred to the ongoing chaos in the region and the world, and said that people's generous participation shows the people's admirable vigilance.

High voter turnout has a pivotal role in securing the country's sustainable security and is a strong support for the elected president to resolve the country's economic problems, he added.

Praising the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei's guidelines for holding successful election, Larijani said that Majlis(parliament) is ready to cooperate with the president-elect to help resolve the country’s economic problems.

The official congratulated President Hassan Rouhani on his re-election.
