TEHRAN – President Ebrahim Raisi on Wednesday outlined his roadmap to combat corruption in administrative and economic sectors.
Raisi told a cabinet meeting that a specialized task force has prepared instructions on the duties of various organizations to prevent and combat corruption.
Unveiling the National Roadmap to Preventing and Combating Administrative and Economic Corruption, the president explained that one of his administration’s top priorities is to tackle and root out corruption by detecting the main festering grounds for corruption in different administrative sectors.
He reminded state managers of their duty to fight corruption in order to reduce the number of cases being dealt with by the Judiciary.
The national roadmap includes 12 main clauses relating to various issues such as transparency, management of conflict of interests, public supervision, meritocracy procedures, and promotion of electronic administrative services.
In remarks after endorsing Raisi as the eighth president of Iran in early August, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei referred to the president’s statements and his frequent insistence on revolutionary values such as justice and fighting corruption, saying he was on the right path.
The Leader advised the president to continue the path with diligence and not abandon it.
Ayatollah Khamenei also advised Raisi to stand with the people in earnest and be sincere with them.
