The election of the members of the ad hoc committee comes as there are arguments about which institution should ratify the agreement.
The Iranian parliament has appointed 15 lawmakers as members of an ad hoc committee tasked with reviewing the recent agreement reached between Tehran and P5+1 over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
An open session of the chamber on Wednesday elected, in an in-house vote, 15 of the 24 lawmakers who had volunteered to be members of the committee.
Among members of the committee are First Vice-Speaker Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabi-Fard, Hossein Naghavi Hosseini and Esmail Kowsari, both members of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, as well as Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee.
The decision to form the committee was made after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif attended a session of parliament one week after the conclusion of the agreement to hand over a copy of the agreement and brief the lawmakers on it.
The election of the members of the ad hoc committee comes as there are arguments about institution should ratify the agreement. Both parliament and the Supreme National Security Council are considered to be entitled to having the final word on the agreement.
