Larijani: Incumbent Gov’t More Successful in Acting Lawfully

Majlis [Parliament] Speaker Ali Larijani lauded President Hassan Rouhani’s government for its achievements in terms of acting in accordance with the law.

“The incumbent government has acted in a more coordinated way with the parliament than the previous one,” Larijani said on Tuesday May 17, addressing a meeting of the Moderation and Development Party with elected Iranian lawmakers.

The Majlis speaker reiterated that when the government respects the parliament, the MPs will surely respect the government, and said, “If this doesn’t happen, there will be no consensus, and the government and the parliament will do their own jobs [separately].”

“Achieving consensus in society needs to have leadership,” Larijani added.
