Iran: Senior parliamentary deputy admits diminishing influence of Khamenei in regime

A ranking member of the Iranian regime’s Majlis (Parliament) confirmed on Sunday that the mullahs’ Supreme Leader has been discredited among the various factions, adding that some are refusing to comply with his views.

According to the state-run Fars news agency, Mohammad Dehqan, a member of the presiding board of Majlis, said there are some who want to remain in the establishment yet refuse to follow the orders of the regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, and thus are harming the entire system.

The deliberate refusal on the part of officials to align themselves with the views of the mullahs’ Supreme Leader means that they have rejected the entire establishment, Dehqan said, adding, “These kinds of people are occupying their positions illegitimately and their salaries are not permitted in accordance with Sharia.”

Dehqan added, “Currently, the fundamentalist faction must first and foremost think of unity among officials, the three branches of government and the people. Those who disregard the need for unity would be dealing irreparable blows to the country.”
