Iranian Parliament Set for Vote on New Ministers

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has to introduce four candidates for the top jobs at the Ministry of Sports and Youth, Ministry of Industries, Mines & Trade, Ministry of Labor, Cooperative & Social Welfare, as well as Oil Ministry.

In the previous round, the parliament rejected Hamid Sajjadi, as the proposed minister of Sports and Youth. This time, though, say some lawmakers, the atmosphere is that of consent.

But there are others who think that it is still too early to jump into any conclusion.

On June 29, MPs approved the merger of the three ministries of Welfare and Social Security, Labor and Social Affairs as well as Cooperative into the new Ministry of Cooperative, Labor and Social Security.

The legislators also passed a bill to merge the ministries of Industries and Mines and Commerce to institute the new Ministry of Industries, Mines and Trade.

The announcement came after President Ahmadinejad declared the establishment of the new Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, following the Parliament's vote of confidence to Ali Nikzad, the candidate to run the ministry.

Under the Fifth Five-Year Development Plan from 2010 to 2015, the government had to reduce its ministries from 21 to 17 to improve the efficiency of the country's administration.
