Tehran, Feb 8 (ANI): The Iranian parliament has summoned President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to answer a series of questions over the government's handling of foreign and domestic policy decisions, for the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Seventy-nine members of the 290-member Majlis voted on Tuesday to summon Ahmadinejad.
The Iranian state media published a list of 10 questions, which it said MPs would put to the president.
Although they focus on the economy, seeking explanations for perceived failures to enact legislation, tackle unemployment and pay subsidies, some delve into the rift between Ahmadinejad and Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, The BBC reports.
According to the report, another question concerns his decision to dismiss former Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki while he was visiting Senegal.
The president will also be asked about why his administration failed to promote the Islamic dress code that calls for women to wear the traditional veil, and to explain his ties to Rahim-Mashaei, whose daughter is married to the president's son.
The summons will be sent to Ahmadinejad in the next two days, and he will be asked to appear in parliament within a month according to Iran's constitution. (ANI)
