Implementation of the constitution needs proper management, he added.

"If all the three bodies do not support the constitution, then who will support it," he said.

"Thieves are still living under safe shelters and their partners will not be detained more than a few days," Ahmad Behzad, Deputy Speaker of Parliament, said.
