New Science Minister New Science Minister

First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri announced on Thursday that the new minister of higher education will be nominated in coming days.  In August, parliament voted for an impeachment motion to dismiss former science minister Reza Faraji-Dana.  The cancellation of the scholarships of a number of Ph.D. students and the failure to deal properly with illegal political activities at universities had been cited as some reasons for the motion to oust Faraji-Dana.
