A senior lawmaker said on Tuesday that President Hassan Rouhani will propose three ministerial candidates to the parliament next week to obtain the lawmakers’ approval.   

In a talk with ICANA, Behrouz Nemati, spokesman of Majlis Presiding Board, said the nominees for the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finance and the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade will be proposed to the Majlis next week and their confirmation votes will be held within two weeks.

Nemati noted that the exact date of the confirmation hearings will be set after the list of nominees is submitted to the presiding board.

Former economy minister, Masoud Karbasian, and former cooperatives minister, Ali Rabiei, were removed after failing to gain the parliamentarians’ votes of confidence during their impeachment sessions in August. 

Industries Minister Mohammad Shariatmadari is widely expected to resign from his post in the coming days.
