Iran’s new parliament displays the regime’s economic deadlock

Iran’s Majlis (parliament)

The second week of the Iranian regime’s new legislature was marked with more infighting among officials of rivaling factions, something that has become a hallmark of the Majlis (parliament). But while regime officials were divided over many matters of state, they all agreed that the country’s economy is in shambles. Further driving the point was the presence of economy minister Farhad Dejpasand, who became the target of MPs for the underperformance of his government.

Dejpasand made it clear during the hearing session that even if oil prices return to their pre-coronavirus levels and the regime manages to export oil as before, the government will still need to rely on “other sources of income,” by which he mainly means taxes on the public.

How is Iran’s wealth spent under Khamenei & Rouhani

With seven percent of the Earth’s natural resources, Iran is one of the richest countries in the world.
Iran news indicates that the Iranian economy suffers from endless corruption and thousands of social dilemmas.
The question is, how is Iran’s capital spent that causes so much suffering for the Iranian people?
“We may have given $20-30 billion to Syria,” said former MP Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh.
The regime has also sent 80,000+ Afghan, Pakistani, & Iraqi proxy fighters to Syria, paying them approximately $9 billion.
Iranian regime Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif once said the regime paid $35 billion to circumvent sanctions and “it’s not clear where the money is now.”
According to the budget deduction report, in 2017, $4.8 billion was distributed among importers who never imported any goods.
Summing up these numbers, at least $70 billion has been stolen from the Iranian people.
This money is equal to:
Creating more than 4.8 billion stable jobs in Iran
1.5 million standards hospital beds
Building 6 million school classes
30-years of cash subsidies for the Iranian people
Free supply of wheat for 20 years means for nine years for all Iranians
Who is to blame for the plight of Iran’s economy? You be the judge.
