Caretaker for Science Ministry

President Hassan Rouhani will appoint a caretaker for the only remaining Cabinet position of science minister.
Mahmoud Vaezi, the telecoms minister in Rouhani’s first Cabinet who is touted as the next presidential chief of staff, made the statement while talking to reporters after a Cabinet meeting on Sunday, IRNA reported.
According to the Iranian Constitution, the caretaker minister can serve up to three months before Majlis approves a minister for the seat. Vaezi said Rouhani will propose his nominee to the parliament for a vote of confidence “in due course”. The reelected president, who took the oath of office in a high-profile ceremony on August 5, unveiled his list of Cabinet picks for all but one of the 18 ministerial posts on Tuesday.
Retaining roughly half of his first Cabinet’s members, particularly those in charge of key ministries of foreign affairs and oil, suggested that Rouhani will continue with policies that center on broadening Iran’s international engagement.
The nominees will be appearing before parliament for confirmation hearings from Tuesday to Sunday.
