Rouhani pledges to abide by his main election promises

Tehran, Jan 23, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said that he will abide by the two major promises he made to the people while campaigning for the second term in office.

Speaking in a televised speech late on Monday, he named job creation and removal of extreme poverty as the two major pledges, saying, “I have incorporated the two in the next Iranian calendar year’s budget.”

He also called on the legislators to help him fulfill these goals, hoping that Majlis (Parliament) will approve the budget in a way that his government would be able to fulfill his electoral promises.
