List of Nominees for New Ministerial Posts Finalized

The president has nominated Mohammad Abbasi as sports and youth minister, Mehdi Ghazanfari as the industry and commerce minister, Abdolreza Sheikholeslami as the minister of cooperatives, labor, and social welfare.

According to the Constitution, the nominated ministers have to gain the parliamentarians’ vote of approval to be confirmed.

The list will probably be submitted to the Majlis on Sunday, the report stated.

Ahmadinejad has also nominated Mohammad Aliabadi as the new oil minister.

Tabnak.ir however said in addition to Aliabadi who is likely to be disqualified by the parliament, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Brigadier General Rostam Qasemi may also be nominated by the president as oil minister.

On July 2, 2011, the parliament gave final approval to a proposal calling for the merger of the Physical Education Organization and the National Youth Organization to form sports and youth ministry.

In addition, as part of the administration’s plan to downsize the government, the Industries and Mines Ministry was merged with the Commerce Ministry, and the Welfare and Social Security Ministry was merged with the Labor and Social Affairs Ministry, and Ministry of Cooperatives.

The Transportation Ministry was also merged with the Housing and Urban Development Ministry.

On June 26, the parliament overwhelmingly approved Ali Nikzad for the post of transport and urban development minister.

According to the Fifth Five-Year Development Plan (2010-2015), the government is obliged to decrease the number of ministries from 21 to 17 to improve the efficiency of the government.

Iran’s Fifth Five-Year Development Plan is part of the 20-Year Outlook Plan (2005-2025), which is the country’s main blueprint for long-term sustainable growth.
