Guardian Council Chairman Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati says the administration is obligated to implement the Majlis ratifications approved by the Guardian Council. In response to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent letter, the Guardian Council published a letter signed by Ayatollah Jannati.

"As you have mentioned, the body which has jurisdiction to determine whether the Majlis ratifications are in line with the Constitution and sharia (Islamic law) is the Guardian Council... it should not be forgotten that after the completion of the examination of the ratified laws by the council, all bodies have no alternative besides abiding by the law," Jannati told Ahmadinejad in the introduction of the letter.

Jannati also wrote, "The first two ratifications mentioned in the letter have been approved by the council and now are considered the law and the administration should observe them."

On June 7, Ahmadinejad sent a letter to the Guardian Council, saying some laws ratified by the parliament contravene the Constitution.

The president had objected to three Majlis ratifications in his letter. The first two ratifications were the Home Construction and Supply Protection Plan and modifications in the admissions rules of some universities.

The president's letter came in the wake of a fierce row between the Majlis and the administration over the administration's refusal to implement some of the plans ratified by the parliament.

Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says the administration has violated some laws ratified by the Majlis, but Ahmadinejad insists that some ratified laws are not consistent with the Constitution.
