Ahmadinejad says propaganda against administration unprecedented

TEHRAN, Sept. 18 (MNA) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that propaganda against his administration at home has reached an unprecedented level.

Foiling the enemy’s plots is the main component of the administration’s foreign policy, he said in an interview with the daily Iran published on Saturday.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the president seemed to downplay the role of the Majlis.

When it comes to the independence of the different branches of government, some only advocate an independent legislative or judiciary branch while the executive body is the most important branch of the government, the president explained.

Certain people cite Imam Khomeini’s statement on the importance of Majlis, but at that time the president was not entirely in charge of the country, rather prime minister, who had to be endorsed by the Majlis, was mostly responsible for running the country, he explained.

According to the Constitution, the administration shoulders the responsibility of running the country, and thus the other branches of government should help it fulfill that duty, the president stated.
