Iran's ex-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has appointed his fellow-workers to new posts at his "Iranian" university, Mehr news Agency reported.

Ex-minister of economy and finance Shamsaddin Hosseini, and ex-head of Iranian presidential administration Hamid Baghayi have been appointed as deputies in the university.

Ahmadinejad has also apponted his ex-Vice president in planning Behrouz Moradi to a post.

Former president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was said to devote most of his time to the university.

There were some reports published about Iranian Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution not approving the list of university founders because of such people as Esfandiyar Mashaei and Hamid Baghaee being on it, who were previously criticized by conservatives and religious leaders of Iran.

Establishing a university in Tehran is allowed only with permission of the Iran's Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution.

In July 2013, member of the Iran's Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution Mohammad Hossein Yadegari said Ahmadinejad planned to establish a private university in Tehran.

At the time, Yadegari said Iran's Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution has accepted Ahmadinejad`s application to create the university. He did not disclose the name of the university.

Iran's ex-president was said to work on training students on becoming highly educated professionals in relevant fields.

It should be recalled that, former president of Iran, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani which was president from 1989 to 1997 also established an university named Islamic Azad University in 1982.
