Soaring prices and record-high inflation that is threatening to cause a new wave of uprisings in Iran has cast a shadow on today’s parliament session.

During his speech in the regime’s parliament session today, MP Majid Naserinejad said: “Mr. Speaker, we really have a serious warning to the President. It’s regarding inflation. He promised to stop inflation. We were supposed to stop inflation. Did you want to stop the soaring prices this way? Some friends suggest we should better inform the people. There is no problem with information; people just can no longer bear these pressures. People are fed up. The issue is a security issue and it must be stopped.”

“Now the dust has taken the breath away from Khuzestan,” he added. “Officials are not seeing any way out of the situation. They don’t move, they’re asleep. People got sick, their lives are ruined, and no one is trying to find a solution.”
