E’temaad (reformist) editorial titled, “The Consequences of a Claim about the Proposed Cabinet,” maintained that “Soon, the Majlis will give a vote of confidence to Mr. Rouhani’s cabinet members, but the principlists, who unhappy with the results of the election, have been seeking to influence the Majlis on the issue of the vote of confidence and have even said that they may not vote for them. They do so to hide their failure in the elections and try to pretend that nothing has changed and that the people’s votes and demands don’t exist either… If Mr. Rouhani introduces the individuals who are supposedly linked to the 1388 events (2009 post-election protests) to the Majlis for a vote of confidence, and whether or not the Majlis vote for them, the question will be raised as to why the people voted for a candidate (Rouhani) who is the representative of those who are linked to the 1388 events, according to (principlist) Majlis members? The disqualification of any of the candidate ministers per the above-mentioned allegations would mean implicit acceptance of the aforementioned fact. In this case, how can we manage a country, while most of its citizens support a specific idea and group, but its Majlis prevents them from entering the executive branch?
