The Guardians Council has declared the end of the term of the fourth city and village councils on August 4 but the order has yet to be officially communicated by the government.  According to Mehdi Chamran, chairman of the outgoing Tehran City Council, the Interior Ministry will decide to communicate the law to the office of governors after President Hassan Rouhani’s inauguration ceremony on August 5, YJC reported.  However, based on the decree of the Guardians, any new decisions of the fourth councils will no longer be legally-binding.  “Since the law has not been formally communicated, the TCC will hold its final session on Sunday to present the fourth council’s report in the presence of Tehran Governor Isa Farhadi” he said.
