Iranian MP optimistic about successful cooperation between parliament, administration

TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian lawmaker voiced optimism about growing cooperation between the Iranian parliament and the new cabinet specially in resolving the existing problems, and underlined that the legislative body is resolved to do its best to this end.

Member of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Ahmad Shohani said the parliament is determined to cooperate with the new government to carry out big tasks, particularly in the economic fields.

He added that the majority of lawmakers want to help the government go ahead with its plans in order to solve the problems.

On Monday, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani underlined that the existing problems in the country will be solved if the country’s legislative and executive bodies expand their mutual cooperation.

“An informed, dynamic, and persistent parliament can guarantee the wellbeing and success of the executive branch,” Rouhani said, calling on both the executive and legislative branches of the government to strengthen their mutual cooperation in order to ease the existing problems in the country as soon as possible.

President Rouhani expressed hope that interaction between the administration and parliament would continue after the formation of the new administration.

Rouhani attended the parliament on Monday for a vote of confidence to his 18 nominees for the post of cabinet ministers.

Rouhani presented the list of his candidates for the posts to the parliament on August 4, on the same day that he was sworn in as Iran’s President.

The Iranian president reiterated in his press conference that he would defend his ministers decisively.

He had said that the country needs experienced individuals for the cabinet and those who will enter the area should have possessed sufficient expertise and experience and have presented a satisfactory record in the past.
