TEHRAN (Iran News) – President Seyed Ebrahim Raisi says, “The next year budget is the first important financial document to be submitted to Majlis in this government, adding that the government wants this budget to have no deficit and inflation and to include economic growth”.
Speaking in the meeting of the government and the Majlis on Wednesday,Raisi said, “We consider consulting with our friends in the Majlis and experts as an asset for us.”
Referring to the priority of a bill over a plan in the statements of the Supreme Leader of the Revolution in a meeting with the members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, the President emphasized, “Sometimes the concerns of the parliament members are presented in the form of a plan; this is the right of the representatives, but if the plans are drafted using the opinion of experts and government officials, they will become law with more richness”.
While emphasizing the clarification of the provisions of the Sixth Development Plan, Ayatollah Raisi said, “The next year budget is the first document that is to be submitted to the parliament. The head of the Plan and Budget Organization will take advantage of the opinions of MPs to draft a budget bill. The government wants the 1401 budget not to have deficits and inflation and to have economic growth.”
The President described legislation and laying the rails for the movement of society as the great duty and responsibility of the Islamic Consultative Assembly and said, “The parliament is a manifestation of the will, vote and discernment of the people and today in our country this laying for the society is manifested in the form of legislation”.
Emphasizing the need to pay attention to the implementation of the law, Raisi said, “All individuals and officials, without exception, should define themselves with the law and be obliged to implement the law, because the law is the center of society”.
Ayatollah Raisi stated that the best and most important criterion for the administration of justice is the implementation of the law, adding, “The criterion for measuring justice in society is agreement on the implementation of the law, and if the law is enforced, justice is enforced and if the law is violated, justice is violated”.
The President considered it important to keep the laws up-to-date and efficient, and said, “But more important is the effort to revise the laws, which the Supreme Leader of the Revolution has repeatedly emphasized, and the parliament is central to this issue.”
Raisi described the convergence, empathy and cohesion of all parts of the country necessary for the correct implementation of laws and emphasized, “The coordination and integration of the three branches in all systems and institutions are not a tactic but a strategy that should not be compromised in any way.”
Ayatollah Raisi said, “The result of ignoring spirituality and politics in today’s world is the increase of nuclear warheads, 70 years of oppression on the Palestinian people and many oppressions that occur in different parts of the world.”
He also underlined the need to politics go hand in hand with spirituality, saying today’s problems in the world stem from the separation of the two from each other.
He said the divorce of politics from spirituality led to the production of nuclear warheads.
The president said Iran’s Parliament today is the manifestation of people’s will, and that a country where elections are held must ensure the prevalence of law. Raisi also said just laws, just enforcement of laws and just judgments are main pivots of administering justice.
