Iranian Lawmakers Complain About Ahmadinejad

Iranian Parliament members recently sent a letter detailing a long list of complaints against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Iran’s powerful Guardian Council, Iranian news media have reported, marking a new phase in an effort by traditional conservatives to rein in the administration and reassert the powers of Iran’s legislative body, according to The New York Times.

The letter, which could theoretically result in the president’s impeachment, was rapidly disavowed by its putative supporters. Many denied having signed the document.

Nevertheless, the uprising is a sign that internal fissures that developed between the Ahmadinejad government and conservatives in Parliament during last year’s wave of protests have yet to be closed.

Mr. Ahmadinejad and the conservatives have sparred frequently since he was first elected, in 2005, with his opponents resisting his cabinet appointments and, this year, fighting his efforts to reduce subsidies on food, fuel and other necessities.
