MPs reject general bill on ‘Support for Iranian Products’

TEHRAN, Jul. 04 (MNA) – Iranian lawmakers on Wed. rejected a general bill on ‘Support for Iranian Products’ over what they cited as the ‘repetitive’ nature of the bill’s articles.

The general bill on ‘Support for Iranian Products’ failed to obtain approval by the Parliament during today’s open session with 92 votes in favor, 73 votes against and 5 abstentions by 206 lawmakers in attendance.

The bill outlines the maximum use of domestic capacities and services in support of Iranian products. The bill had 25 articles, and was evaluated and passed by commissions of education and research, industries and support for national production.

The Iranian lawmakers rejected the general bill, saying many of its articles were repetitive and there was no new article in support of Iranian products.

The call for replacing foreign goods with domestic production has gained special impetus after the US pullout from the Iran nuclear deal and the re-imposition of sanctions and economic pressure against the country.
