Pres. Raisi names people’s livelihood highest priority

Tehran, IRNA – In his first cabinet meeting, President Ebrahim Raisi said that his administration was determined to uphold justice which is best exemplified in practicing the the law, stressing that fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, containing the inflation and securing people’s livelihood are of the highest priorities for his government.

He called on his ministers to concentrate all their effort and time to compensate for the areas lagging behind, so that people can feel advancement and justice.

The President also put emphasis on fighting corruption and economic rent as one of his most importance promises, asking his ministers to close the holes through which corruption in different areas occur, especially when an advantage is given by the government to private sector.

He also tasked his Roads and Urban Development Minister to do his best to fulfil the promise of building 1,000,000 houses each year.
