MP accuses Ahmadinejad administration of ignoring constitutional regulations

Iranian MP, Mohammadreza Khabbaz

Mohammadreza Khabbaz, Iranian MP announced today that the government does not send its new acts to the parliament for review and the MPs have been taking the new approved regulations from Government websites and the newspapers.

Khabbaz added that according to the constitution: “All government acts, regulations, etc. that are issued for the executive offices must be first forwarded to the legislature to be reviewed for correspondence with the law.” But the government has refrained from doing so since the beginning of the current year.

The MP told ILNA that the parliament has not made a case of this government shortcoming and has been getting the material from other sources and informing them regarding the necessary issues.

The member of Government Acts Review Committee however adds that the government refuses to shoulder its responsibility.

Hassan Sobhaninia, member of the parliament's Executive Committee announced that this issue is being considered by their committee and announced that the government is in “violation” of the law.

In the past months, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been involved in serious disputes with the parliament and has been accused by parliamentarians of ignoring approved legislation and inciting lawlessness.
