Newly appointed chairman and members of Iran’s Expediency Council met with Ayatollah Khamenei, on Wednesday morning.
During the meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei said the Expediency Council is a legacy of the Islamic Revolution, founded based on Imam Khomeini’s ideas.
“The Expediency Council is a product of the Islamic Revolution and reminds us of Imam Khomeini. It plays an influential role in governing and managing the country,” the Leader added.
Ayatollah Khamenei demanded that the ideals and values of the Islamic Revolution of 1979 be applied to the council, further adding, “Imam Khomeini’s thoughts and the ideals of the Islamic Revolution must fully rule over the Expediency Discernment Council.”
“The Council should think and act [based on] revolutionary [ideals],” the Leader went on to say.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the three most important duties of the Expediency Council as, “discerning the expediency of the system, advisement on charting general policies for the country and offering solutions to problems the country deals with.”
