Sheikholeslami to Run New Iran Ministry

Iran's Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi said on Monday that President Ahmadinejad would likely name Abdolreza Sheikholeslami, the current Iranian Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, as his nominee for the new post, Mehr News Agency reported.

Iran's Guardian Council on July 3 threw its weight behind a bill passed by the country's Parliament (Majlis) to merge five ministries into two new ones.

On June 29, Iranian lawmakers approved the merger of the three ministries of Welfare and Social Security, Labor and Social Affairs as well as Cooperatives into the new Ministry of Cooperatives, 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 Industry, Mine and Trade.

President Ahmadinejad had earlier issued a decree, declaring the establishment of the new Ministry of Roads and Urban Development. The move came after the Majlis vote of confidence to Ali Nikzad, the president's candidate to run the ministry.

On May 9, the Iranian government announced plans to merge the Ministries of Roads and Transportation with Housing and Urban Development, Energy with Oil, Industries and Mines with Commerce, and Welfare and Social Security with Labor and Social Affairs in line with the 53rd article 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 from 21 to 17 to improve the efficiency of the country's administration.
