MP: Oil Ministry Activities Illegal

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's decision to run the Oil Ministry is illegal, Bahonar said on Sunday, adding that “the president should introduce an oil minister as soon as possible.”

“All activities which take place in the Oil Ministry until then are against the law and can be legally pursued,” Bahonar added.

In a televised speech on May 15, President Ahmadinejad said he would temporarily run Iran's Oil Ministry following his decision to relieve three Iranian ministers of their duties as part of a plan to merge ministries.

Earlier in May, Ahmadinejad dismissed Welfare Minister Sadeq Mahsouli, Minister of Mines and Industries Ali Akbar Mehrabian and Oil Minister Massoud Mirkazemi from their posts in line with Article 53 of the Fifth Five-Year Development Plan.

According to Iran's Fifth Five-Year Development Plan (2010-2015), the Iranian government is obliged to reduce its ministries form 21 to 17 in order to officially improve the efficiency of state administration.

Bahonar added that the president can only act as a ministry's caretaker for three months.

The Iranian lawmaker also urged the government to introduce the new minister of Roads and Transportation.

In February former Minister of Roads and Transportation Hamid Behbahani failed to obtain a vote of confidence following his impeachment, as 147 Iranian lawmakers voted in favor of his dismissal.
