Iran president-elect Pezeshkian won’t need to resign from parliament

The Iran Project : It is not necessary for Iranian President-Elect Masoud Pezeshkian to submit a formal resignation from the Parliament before taking the oath of office, as the endorsement of his mandate by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution will suffice for the lawmakers, an MP said.

According to The Iran Project, speaking to Tasnim, the spokesperson for the Iranian Parliament’s presiding board said the president-elect, currently a member of the Parliament, won’t need to go through the resignation process before being inaugurated as the new president of Iran.

Alireza Salimi noted that the Parliament is not going to hold any session on Pezeshkian’s resignation, as the endorsement of his mandate by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei will confirm that he has stepped down as a parliamentarian.

Pezeshkian is going to take the oath of office to be officially inaugurated as the Islamic Republic of Iran’s ninth president in coming weeks.

Pezeshkian was elected to the Parliament as a representative of the northwestern city of Tabriz in the parliamentary elections on March 1.

After the death of President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash on May 19, Pezeshkian became one of six final candidates singled out by the Constitutional Council from 80 applicants seeking the presidency.

He won the highest number of votes in the first round of the presidential election on June 28 and faced off the runner-up, Saeed Jalili, in the runoff election on July 5.

The physician-turned-politician won the runoff by garnering 53.66% of the votes.

His new administration, the 14th one after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, will hold office for four years.
