Majlis to Vote on Cabinet Today

The parliament is due to decide on giving votes of confidence to President Hassan Rouhani’s second-term Cabinet on Sunday.

Akbar Ranjbarzadeh, a member of Majlis Presiding Board, made the announcement in a talk with IRNA on Saturday.

“Lawmakers finish confirmation hearings today and the voting will be held on Sunday,” he said, adding that Rouhani will attend the session to speak up for his choices.

The ministers-to-be started appearing before parliament on Tuesday to defend their records and plans in the hope of meeting the threshold to become ministers.

Four lawmakers could debate on the qualifications of nominees before they take the floor, with two speaking in favor of them and two against.

Rouhani is likely to have a smooth time in the assembly along with nearly all of his picks, even though members of the reformist parliamentary faction hold negative views about several nominees.

Two other factions, belonging to principlists and independents, are positive on the whole Cabinet. None of the three parliamentary factions commands a definitive majority in the 290-member council.

According to Iran’s Constitution, the nominees require a simple majority of votes in their favor to take over ministerial portfolios.
