During discussions held in the Majlis on approving the General Budget Law, the words of one supporter of the law led to tension in the Majlis. Muhammad Kisam Othmani, a member of the Majlis Planning and Budget Committee, said that the candidacy of Rahim Mashaei will not be approved. His words brought protest from some Majlis representatives, including Hosinian and Kochak Zadeh. According to reports on the exchange between government supporters and Othmani, he called them “disrespectful.” The verbal confrontation almost ended in physical confrontation when Othmani tried to hit one of the Majlis members, but this was averted.
