IR Leader issues message on eighth Majlis

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei issued a message Tuesday on the inaugural of the eighth Iranian Majlis, urging the elected lawmakers to live up to their significant undertaking.

"A pious, brave, independent, and wise Majlis has helped introduce a model of Islamic democracy to the world," Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The IR Leader reminded the lawmakers that it had been a top demand of the nation to form a parliament through public vote which seeks to run the country through laws and regulations and implements the sacred Islamic goals.

"The beginning of the 8th Majlis is coincided with the fourth decade of the Islamic Revolution which is the decade of progress alongside justice; Progress in economic, moral and cultural affairs and justice in the distribution of material and spiritual facilities," Ayatollah Khamenei wrote.

Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the need for close interaction between the Majlis and the Executive Power.

"While Majlis' responsibility as a supervisory body should not be neglected, at the same time, the responsibility should not be considered as a means to compete with the government or ignore its demands and shortages," the IR Leader said in his message read out by his representative Qolam-Hossein Mohammadi Golpayegani.

Ayatollah Khamenei called Majlis and the Executive Power as two elected and revolutionary bodies committed to the Islamic values and principles.

The IR Leader concluded his message by saluting the Noblest Messenger of Allah, Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) and his infallible household.
