Khamenei: Make President a Parliamentary Decision

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, implied on Sunday that Iran may make the appointment of the country’s president a parliamentary decision.

The announcement appears to be a threat to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was elected twice in direct elections. Ahmadinejad has recently been criticized by some political opponents, who have accused him of undermining the rule of the ayatollahs.
