Govt. resorts to every means not to implement law: lawmaker

TEHRAN, Sept. 26 (MNA) -- Senior principlist lawmaker Mohammad-Reza Bahonar says the administration “resorts to every available means” to evade an implementation of laws it does not like.

The veteran MP made the remarks at a meeting of the Islamic Society of Engineers late on Saturday.

Bahonor went on to say that the changes made by the special Majlis committee to the Fifth Development Plan (2010-2015) were actually intended to realize the goals of the subsidy reform plan, Article 44 of the Constitution, and reformation of the consumption patterns.

He said the administration’s request to withdraw the plan was a “flawed” measure.

The administration later retracted the bid to withdraw the plan.

MP Ahmad Tavakoli, who was present in the meeting, also said the plan which had been originally drawn up by the government lacked coherence and was not “legally defensible”.

Tavakoli made the remarks in response to the government’s announcement that the plan has lost its coherence through these changes and it cannot be implemented.

The five-year plan is part of the Outlook Plan (2005-2025) which has been drawn up for the long-term sustainable growth.
