Growing criticism of Ahmadinejad in Iran (UPI, 1/16/07)

There is growing criticism of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran, including a parliamentary drive to summon him to answer questions, a report says.

Even previously friendly hard-line newspapers have taken him to task for being too hostile towards the West since the passage of a U.N. sanctions resolution, the BBC said.

About 50 members of parliament are believed to have signed a resolution that would force him to come before the body. But 75 signatures are needed for the resolution to take effect.

A letter asking the president to be more realistic in the assumptions behind his next budget has received the signatures of 150 members of parliament, the report said.

W's going to outlast him too.
