TEHRAN - Iran's parliament summoned President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for questioning, semi-official Mehr news agency said on Monday, raising tensions in a power struggle between factions in the Islamic Republic's ruling elite.

Ahmadinejad -- facing parliamentary elections next year and a presidential race in 2013 -- must attend the assembly within a month, Mehr said, after 100 lawmakers signed a motion calling him in.

Unless he can persuade parliament to withdraw the summons, Ahmadinejad will face questions over his delay in nominating a sports minister and in granting parliament-approved funding to the Tehran Metro , Mehr said.
