MPs Want Rouhani to Explain Economic Decline

Lawmakers have given President Hassan Rouhani one month to appear in parliament to answer questions on his government’s handling of the economy that is undergoing unusually hard times over the past several months as millions struggle to make ends meet. 
It is the first time parliament has summoned the embattled Rouhani, who is under mounting pressure to reshuffle his Cabinet following the upsurge in economic difficulties unseen in recent history.
Lawmakers want to question Rouhani on topics including the precipitous decline in the value of the rial, which has lost more than half its value since April, fragile economic growth and rising unemployment, according to ISNA News Agency.
