“Some laws passed by the Majlis are not in line with the Constitution,” Ahmadinejad said in a letter to Guardian Council Chairman Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati.
The letter comes in the wake of a fierce row between the Majlis and the administration over the administration’s refusal to implement some of the plans ratified by the parliament.
Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says the administration has violated some laws ratified by the Majlis and has noted that Ahmadinejad even believes that some ratified laws are not consistent with the Constitution.
In his letter, the president gave details on the laws approved by the Majlis that he believes are not in line with the Constitution.
“I have sworn to safeguard the Constitution, and due to my legal and religious obligations, I, as the people’s servant, would like to explain some points to you and the respectable members of the Guardian Council,” the president told Ayatollah Jannati in the introduction of the letter.
The addition of some amendments to the annual national budget plan without following the normal procedure, the addition of amendments to the Home Construction and Supply Protection Plan, and modifications in the university admission rules are some of these ratifications, Ahmadinejad wrote.
