Iran parliament has voted against the bill obliging the government to streamline the distribution network for providing Iranian households with essential goods through consumer cooperatives, chain stores, guild units and related unions. 
Under the rejected bill, the Consumer and Producer Protection Organization would have been tasked with setting the prices of essential goods at lower prices based on the subsidized foreign currency they receive.
