Rouhani: People Are for a Strong, Effective Parliament

President Hassan Rouhani said the Iranian nation have favoured a strong and effective Majlis [Parliament] for over a century.

“Parliament is the manifestation of public supervision and people’s sovereignty,” Rouhani said in his address to the inauguration ceremony of the 10th Majlis, which started work on Saturday May 28.

“The nation wants a Majlis that has full power to legislate within the framework of Islamic principles and national interests,” he said.

People should be law-abiding, he went on to say, adding that the observance of laws can help remove obstacles.

“Government and the Majlis have separate defined duties, but both have some common functions that should be carried out by standing together.”

“To solve the country’s problems, we need interaction,” the President said, stressing that observance of law is a must.

On domestic affairs, Rouhani said that Iran needs investment to witness economic growth. “No country can achieve an economic boom, unless it interacts with the world.”
