Ayatollah Ali Khamenei backs vote on nuke deal 4.9.2015 Asian Age: International
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Iran’s Supreme Leader said on Thursday he favoured a parliamentary vote on its nuclear deal reached with world powers and called for sanctions against Tehran to be lifted completely rather than suspended, state television reported. President Hassan Rouhani, a pragmatist whose 2013 election paved the way to a diplomatic thaw with the West, and his allies have opposed such a parliamentary vote, arguing this would create legal obligations hampering the deal’s implementation. “Parliament should not be sidelined on the nuclear deal issue ... I am not saying legislators should approve the deal or reject it. It is up to them to decide,” said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all state policy in Iran. “I have told the President that it is not in our interest to not let our lawmakers review the deal,” he said in remarks broadcast live on state television.

Indian-American Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal on Thursday lashed out at his party Senators for supporting the Iranian nuclear deal which he argued gives Tehran an opportunity to acquire nuclear weapons. Continuing with his election campaign events in Iowa, Jindal, 44, said that the Republican Senators in Washington DC surrendered to the US President Barack Obama and ultimately helped him get approval for his Iran deal. Two-term Governor of Louisiana, Jindal said Senate Republicans are the only ones who are worse negotiators than Obama. "Every single Republican Senator in D.C. except for Senator Tom Cotton supported the Corker framework. That's when Republicans surrendered to President Obama on the Iran deal. "Many have argued that bill paved the way for Obama to only need 34 votes to win," he said. "By endorsing the Corker-Cardin framework, the Senators allowed the deal to go ahead.
