TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The president-elect of Iran, Ebrahim Raeisi, expressed his future government’s support for and readiness for cooperation with the new Judiciary chief who was appointed by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Thursday.
In a message for Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei, the president-elect congratulated his successor on appointment to the post of the Judiciary chief of Iran.
Hailing Ejei’s stellar academic, practical and judicial experiences and his revolutionary morale, President-elect Raeisi stressed the need for closer interaction among the three branches of power to achieve the Islamic Republic’s goals.
Raeisi, who was the Judiciary chief for more than two years and has been replaced by Mohseni Ejei after winning the recent presidential election, said his administration will be ready to cooperate with the new Judiciary chief and assist him in carrying out the responsibilities.
Raeisi won the June 18 presidential election by a landslide and will take office as Iran’s eighth president in August.
In his decree issued on Thursday, Ayatollah Khamenei thanked Raeisi for his valuable services and brilliant record during his tenure as the head of the Judiciary branch of power and cited Mohseni Ejei’s merits and long-term service in the Judiciary as the basis of his decision.
Ayatollah Khamenei also stressed continued efforts in the Judiciary to promote justice, uphold people’s rights, ensure legal freedoms, oversee the implementation of laws, prevent crimes, and decisively fight corruption.
The Leader further stressed the need for continuing the implementation of the Judicial Development Document that was introduced during Raiesi’s tenure.
Mohseni Ejehi was the deputy of the Judiciary and also served as the Judiciary’s spokesman previously. He had earlier worked as Iran’s prosecutor general.
