Parliament speaker says Iranian president's answers unsatisfactory
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 16 / Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Iranian president's answers to the questions in parliament were unsatisfactory and impolite, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said, Fars reported.
A few days ago, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad appeared at the morning session of the Iranian parliament to answer questions from a number of representatives over his performance. President was presented 10 questions and given time to answer them.
Ahmadinejad is the first president in Iranian history to face questions by parliament.
Earlier, Fars reported referring to some members of the Majlis (Iran's parliament) who assessed Ahmadinejad's answers to questions as "unsatisfactory" and "contemptuous".
Ali Larijani, according to Fars, supports the opinion of other parliamentary members. He said that during his speech before the parliament, Ahmadinejad "used words that could have been skipped".
"It was a positive sign that the president agreed to answer the questions and did so," Larijani added. "We would like to thank him for that".
Larijani also added that the fact of Ahmadinejad being questioned by the members of parliament shows presence of democracy in Iran.
