Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 20 / Trend R.Zamanov /
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani introduced the list of his three new nominees for the ministries of Education; Science, Research and Technology; and Sports and Youth to the Iranian Parliament (Majlis).
The names of the nominees are not released officially, but unconfirmed reports suggest that the current caretakers of Education and Sports and Youth ministries have been introduced to Majlis.
However, the Iranian President has reportedly replaced the current caretaker of Science, Research and Technology Mohammah Jafar Tofighi with a new nominee, who is believed to be Reza Faraji Dana.
Three out of the 18 ministerial nominees failed to win the vote of confidence from the Majlis in August.
The vote of confidence will be held next Sunday.
