Tehran, YJC. In reaction to parliamentary interpellations of some ministers in the past days, President has demanded for more support for the cabinet.

Hassan Rouhani who was meeting officials and lawmakers of Guilan on Monday pointed to numerous instances of questions posed to the 11th administration’s by lawmakers in the first initial months since the government started its job, saying "Interpellation is a right for lawmakers. But such volume of questions posed to ministers is out of proportion to their work load. Also, at some instances certain demands go against the law and the minister should not be threatened for not fulfilling it. The lawmakers have to encourage ministers for better work.”

He also added "But I have asked the ministers to insist on the close adherence to the law while keeping their respect for the Majlis representatives. I have no doubts that the lawmakers, too, care for the country and seek a better state of affairs.”

The president demanded that lawmakers act in unison to support the government in fulfilling national needs, adding "The meaning of this request is not to help the president or the ministers; but rather helping the government’s efforts in raising people’s needs. All the branches must act in integrity and pursue the job under the supervision of the Supreme Leader.”
