Majlis Sixteenth Terms Begins

By: Mir M.Hosseini

The 16th Majlis term started on Feb, 9, 1950.
The sixteenth term was noisy, sawing the seeds of the Nationalization of Oil Industry. Britain filed a complaint with the International Court of Justice resulting in a restraining order preventing the Iranian government from measures it had already taken for transfer of oil industry to Iranians. The Iranian government called the verdict as invalid. The British closed their consular offices in Iran.
During this term, some important bills passed by Majlis were:
- Revoking of all press laws, except for 1908 law.
- Resolution for Nationalization of Oil Industry.
- Bill for construction of tap water and sewage system.
Majlis 16th term ended on Feb, 18, 1952.
