Iranian parliament starts impeaching road minister
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 6
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: The Iranian parliament started a session to impeach Roads and Urban Development Minister Abbas Akhoundi.
Thirteen MPs signed the impeachment motion, Iran's IRNA news agency reported Oct. 6.
The minister will be questioned for not fulfilling his promised plans, problems related to roads and urban development, rural housing projects, as well as financial deficits of the ministry.
In May 24 MPs had signed a motion to impeach Akhoundi.
At that time, MP Mousarreza Servati said the minister pledges, but does not meet standards. Today, neither the problem of housing nor the problem of flights has been resolved. Development problems are also extant.
