Iranian lawmakers have given President Hassan Rouhani one month to appear before Parliament to answer questions on his government's handling of Iran's economic struggles, state media reported Wednesday. It is the first time Parliament has summoned Rouhani, who is under pressure from hard-line rivals to change his Cabinet following a deterioration in relations with the United States and Iran's growing economic difficulties. ISNA said lawmakers also want to Rouhani to explain why, over two years after the landmark deal, Iranian banks still have only limited access to global financial services.Rouhani's summon coincides with further shows of public discontent.Although 80 lawmakers submitted questions for Rouhani, a Rouhani ally, Vice President for Parliamentary Affairs Hosseinali Amiri, called the process "unconstitutional".
