イラン インフレに国民が抗議

数年に一度はイランへ帰ってはいます。年々、国民の眼が訴えてくるものが大きくなる。圧迫され、生活が本当に苦しい状態。みんな得をするとか以前に、普通に明日をむかえたいだけ。地方の人々はもっと生活が苦しい。イランは素晴らしい国だっただけに今の状態を悲しむ人々が多いのを毎回、肌で感じる。

Second day of protests press Iranian MPs, President Rouhani to act
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region − Some cities again protested high inflation and economic hardship while Iranian MPs questioned President Hassan Rouhani and asked for radical change in his cabinet.

Videos on social media showed people in Isfahan and Karaj on the street, protesting against inflation and unemployment. They began on Tuesday and have continued on Wednesday.

In one video from Karaj, the protesters chanted "so long as the dictator is in power, the uprising will continues,” a reference to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Meanwhile, 80 MPs questioned Rouhani on Wednesday, according to Tasnim news agency.

The MPs questioned the ability of Rouhani's cabinet in dealing with high inflation and unemployment, the continuous of sanctioning of Iran’s banking system, and unsuccessful efforts by the government to confront smuggling.

Based on Iranian law, the questions will be sent to the relevant government ministers who should provide explanations. If at least one quarter of Iran’s MPs still is not convinced with the explanations, Rouhani must attend the parliament within a month when the parliament can ask for a vote of confidence.

The Iranian economy has faced high inflation since US President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. On Monday, Iran's currency hit an all-time low against the US dollar as a fresh round of sanctions looms − the rial fell to 112,000 against the 1 USD, down from 98,000.

Last week, the government changed the head of Iran's central bank, but Iranian MPs are asking for radical changes in the cabinet including a new finance minister.

US President Donald Trump told White House reporters on Monday that he is willing to meet Iranian leaders "any time they want.”
Yet, several Iranian officials rejected any talks between the two countries. Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in a press conference that the United States has to have respect for Iran and international law in order for dialogue to occur, according to IRNA news agency.

"Threats, sanctions and PR stunts won't work. Try respect: for Iranians and for (international) commitments," tweeted Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday.

The Iranian regime is vulnerable to high inflation. There have been widespread protests in response to deteriorating economic conditions. On June 25, traders in the Iranian capital's Grand Bazaar held a rare strike against the collapse of the rial on the foreign exchange market. At the start of 2018, many cities in Iran witnessed widespread protests against high inflation and economic hardship.
