Iranian parliament to consider candidates for new Cabinet of Ministers again
The Iranian parliament will consider candidatures of ministers to be approved for the new Cabinet of Ministers on Nov. 15. They failed to get votes for ministers of education, social protection and power engineering, IRNA information agency said.
Ahmadinejad proposed to appoint current representative of the parliament Hamid Reza Hajibabaei - minister of education, ex-minister of internal affairs Sadig Mahsouli - minister of social protection and current energy minister Majid Namjou - energy minister.
Ahmadinejad won at the presidential elections held in Iran on June 12. Supporters of lost opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi accused the government of falsification of voting results and called on their cancellation. About 27 people died as a result of mass disorders in Tehran. About 1,000 people were arrested.
New partial counting of votes made by Iranian Control Council did not affect the final result. Ahmadinejad was announced winner at the presidential elections.
The new Cabinet of Ministers' authorities were discussed in August. All candidatures collected necessary number of votes except for candidates for ministers of education, social protection and energy.
