Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that conflict between the executive and supervisory boards of the election is not something new and every conflict has a solution, IRNA reported from Tehran.
"There is no knot that cannot be untied and every conflict has a solution. During its blessed life, the Islamic Revolution has succeeded in breaking the deadlocks. Today too, thanks God, there is no deadlock in front of the Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation," he said.
"One is not authorized to shun its duty, because of his objection to a method or an event. Refraining from fulfilling a task in the form of resignation is Haram (religiously forbidden)," he said.
The Supreme Leader said that the majority of members of parliament are faithful to the Islamic Revolution and keen on serving the people adding that the parliament is the pillar of the Islamic Republic.
Of course, certain individuals may have infiltrated into parliament and they are showing the facts upside down, he said. "In the Islamic Republic, we are servants of people and take our prestige from the service to the people.
"People are not indebted to the officials of the Islamic Republic. Rather it is the officials that have a debt of gratitude to people. This spirit has been the key to the survival of the Islamic Republic over the past 25 years in the face of conspiracies of the enemies," he said.
The Supreme Leader said that Majlis shoulders heavy responsibility which are the religious, ethical and national obligation for the members of parliament.
"After the end of the imposed war, great works have been done in the country and the bright prospects are gradually emerging. But, the enemy is conspiring to stop the progress," he said.
Elsewhere in his speech, the Supreme Leader offered felicitations to the Iranian nation on the occasion of Ten-Day Dawn and Ghadir Khom feast (February 10).
Ghadir Khom is a place in Saudi Arabia where Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) introduced Imam Ali (AS) as his successor in his last Hajj pilgrimage.
The Supreme Leader recalled the decades of foreign dominance over Iran - the British and US plundering of Iran - and said that the Islamic Revolution brought awareness to the Iranians and they toppled dictatorship and took over their own destiny in 1979.
On the Islamic resurrection worldwide, the Supreme Leader said that the young generation in the Muslim countries celebrate the anniversary of victory of the Islamic Revolution every year because they regard it as a model for their own national resurrection.
