Iran parliament summons President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Iran’s parliament has summoned the president for questioning for the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad faces a long list of questions about the state of the economy, as well as his foreign and domestic policy decisions.

MPs have threatened similar action before, but failed to follow through.

The summons will be sent to Mr Ahmadinejad in the next two days. He must appear in parliament within a month according to Iran’s constitution.

That means he could appear after legislative elections on 2 March – the first national elections since the disputed presidential poll in 2009.
