Ali Larijan’s last press conference as 8th Majlis Speaker - Key Points:

Wednesday, 23 May 2012

• Defined 8th Majlis as strategic, challenging and sensitive about regional and international issues such as relations with the UK and a forerunner in reacting to regional incidents and revolutions.

• Weak point – lack of punctuality; 3 branches of power should be like brothers - Majlis’ independence does not mean conflicting with the government or the Judiciary… Majlis being subordinate … would harm democracy and rule by the people. The three branches of power should be like brothers, but only a strong brother can help his other brothers. The stronger the Legislative (Majlis), the more it will be able to help other branches of power.

• Increased prices of petrol and staple goods – disaster - If the government were to increase the price of petrol and people’s staple needs, a disaster would occur.

• Source of inflation liquidity - “The surge in prices is a problem attributed to the amount of cash supply in the country, which has increased from 650,000 billion rials to 3,500,000 billion rials over the past seven years”. If money had been injected into the production sector, inflation might have been controlled.
