Iran Leader Urges Unity, Calls For Popular Referendums

Most disputes can be resolved through recourse to constitutional principles, Hassan Rouhani says.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday called for making use of constitutional articles allowing the use of popular referendums with a view to deciding contentious national issues.

In a statement released by his office, Rouhani said: "We should benefit from constitutional options related to the administration of our country."

Calling for a "year of unity", he said most of Iran's national debates could be resolved "through the exercise of basic constitutional principles".

"Everyone has a responsibility to adhere to the constitution," Rouhani said.

"The president has different responsibilities from everyone else. Therefore, they [i.e., the public] should help the president [resolve issues of national concern]," he added.

In a speech delivered on Sunday to mark the 39th anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution, Rouhani said the constitution must remain a main point of reference for resolving disputes.

He went on to cite Article 59 of Iran's national charter, which reads: "Debates over legislation related to important social, cultural, economic or political issues can be resolved through a direct vote by the people." -
