The president said that the government and the parliament do not have a common understanding of the constitution, adding: “For example, some members of parliament say that we should monitor the work of ministers, while this is not the case according to the law.”
According to Eqtesadnews, Hojjatoleslam and Muslimeen, President Hassan Rouhani said this morning (Monday) at the meeting on constitutional rights and citizenship that our constitution is one of the most notable laws in the world and we can be proud of it. It is modern, but unfortunately our understanding of the constitution is not the same. Of course, it has been predicted which institution is responsible for interpreting the constitution.
Rouhani said: the government and the parliament do not have a common understanding of the constitution. For example, some members of parliament say that we should monitor the work of ministers, while according to the law, only the president can monitor the work of ministers.
He added: “We do not have a place where the parliament wants to monitor, of course, if it needs questions and interpellation, it can do it, but we do not have anything in the constitution that the parliament can monitor the work of ministers.”
