Iranian Energy Minister Majid Namjou will report to parliament.
Today, MPs collected and submitted signatures to call the minister to parliament to report to the presidium, the Iranian news agency İSNA reported.
Parliamentarians summoned Namjou for the report because he is unable to organize proper management and cope with his responsibilities.
The Iranian parliament deprived Transport Minister Hamid Behbahani of his authorities on Feb. 1. Roughly 147 MPs voted for his removal, 78 voted against it, and nine abstained. In total, 234 of 242 MPs participated in the voting.
Behbahani was called to parliament to make a report on his activities but failed to appear. Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani said his failure to appear in parliament was a flagrant violation of the law.
Behbahani is the first minister to be brought before the legislature during the second presidential term of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
At that time, Ahmadinejad was faced with the threat of having to form a new cabinet. By the end of his first term, 8 ministers were forced to resign and voluntarily left their positions.
A serious scandal during the period was Interior Minister Ali Kordan being called to parliament to present a report on his activity. The minister was accused of falsifying his honorary diploma, which led to his resignation.
