Motion to question Ahmadinejad submitted to Majlis

On Sunday, once again a motion was presented to the Majlis presiding board to question President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, MNA reported.

The motion, signed by 73 MPs in the 290-seat parliament, was presented to deputy Majlis speaker Mohammadreza Bahonar who chaired the Majlis on Sunday.

It is the second time that a motion is being presented to the presiding board to question the president.

However, in the previous time the presiding board announced that the number of signatures had decreased to 69 as some lawmakers had withdrawn their signature and now signatures fell short of threshold.

According to the Constitution, the president must appear in the parliament to answer MPs' questions when at least one fourth of the lawmakers sign a motion summoning him.
