Tehran (IP) - A member of Iran’s parliament says that about 50 million people have Justice Shares and can buy and sell their shares at the stock market, which makes Iran a unique market among the countries of the region.

Iran PressIran NewsIn an exclusive interview with Iran Press, Mohammad Reza Pour-Ebrahimi, Chairman of the Economic Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis), said: "Given the recent decisions in the field of economy, the government has been offering the shares of state-owned companies and as a result of the release of Justice Shares, currently a large population of Iranians became shareholders.”

The MP said: "Maybe the proportion of our stock market shareholders is unique among the countries in the region. About 50 million people have Justice Shares, and since the announcement of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei regarding the release of Justice Shares, they have been able to buy and sell their shares. The simple implication is that the capital market of 50 million people has been created, and this capital is a very important capacity in the economy.”

"Therefore, considering the participation of the people, we think that there is an exceptional opportunity and we can allocate resources for the field of economic activities of the country. Of course, we always need to keep the market in a reasonable balance," the MP noted.
