Tehran City Council Accepts Mayor’s Second Resignation

Tehran City Council on Tuesday accepted the second resignation of Mayor Mohammad Ali Najafi after he insisted on being unable to carry out his duties due to health reasons.
ISNA reported that 15 of the 21-member council voted in favor of accepting the resignation.
“After the council rejected my resignation, I consulted with my physician again to see if it would be possible for me to undergo surgery and treatment while continuing work at the Municipality. The doctor was insistent that I step down,” Najafi wrote in his resignation letter.
He did not reveal the nature of his illness. Some news outlets have suggested that he is suffering from prostate cancer.
Najafi, who took office in August promising to fight corruption, submitted his resignation in mid-March, but the council rejected it at a meeting on Sunday.
