All Municipal Activities Will Be People-Centered

  2021 September 11 Saturday:

According to the city correspondent, Alireza Zakani, the mayor of Tehran, on the sidelines of the Tehran City Council meeting, told reporters about the utilization of citizens' capacity to run the city: “Possibility and conditions to make use of Tehran’s capacities are available if we can attract the participation of people and serve them. In fact, the ground must be prepared for the capacities of the citizens to come to the fore.”

Saying that people should be the locus of participation, Zakani said: "All municipal activities have been people-centered and our movement is going in the direction of bringing change on the basis of cultural, social, economic and physical developments of the city with the participation of people based on neighborhoods, and in doing so, bringing together the accumulated capacity in the context of society for transformation.”

In response to a question about the development of public transportation in Tehran, Zakani explained: "The development of public transportation is the duty of the municipality and we have decisive arrangements for the metro, bus and taxi, which are the three pillars of public transportation. In addition, depreciable capacity should be reviewed; for example, two-thirds of subway carriages need to be overhauled, and this should be done in such a way so that the status quo is not harmed.”
