President Hassan Rouhani appointed Mohammad Nahavandian as his deputy for economic affairs on Sunday. The position of economic affairs deputy is a new title in the array of Iranian vice presidents. Nahavandian has been the president’s chief of staff since 2013. The 63-year-old served as deputy minister of commerce in the governments of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Mohammad Khatami. In December 2007, he was elected the head of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture and led the so-called “parliament of Iran’s private sector” until 2013.
