  • Dozens of Iranian lawmakers have signed a petition seeking summoning of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for questioning. He is the first president of the Islamic Republic to be called for questioning since the Islamic Revolution 32 years ago. However, the petition seemed unlikely to succeed because the numbers fall short of the constitutional requirement that at least one-fourth of the 290 parliament members must sign before the president can be questioned. Iranian lawmakers, including conservatives, have complained in the past about being sidelined in key decisions by Ahmadinejad over issues such as foreign policy and strategic economic planning.1
