With the decree of Ali Asghar Mounesan, the head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, on Wednesday, Delavar Bozorgnia was officially appointed as director of Tehran's office to be the third person to take the position in less than two months. 
Rajabali Khosroabadi, the twelfth provincial director who had headed the office for four years, was replaced by Majid Mahdavi in late February. 
Although Mahdavi had talked of long-term plans, he was apparently appointed as an interim director because the invitation letter for the inauguration of the Louvre exhibition in Iran National Museum on Sunday was addressed to Bozorgnia, ISNA reported. 
During his 45-day stint, Mahdavi only spoke to reporters once while visiting heritage sites in Rey County to the south of the capital. He announced plans to launch a think tank to rescue and safeguard Tehran's cultural heritage. 
He also declared his intention to organize monthly gatherings with reporters and cultural heritage NGOs.
