Majlis Rejects ICHHTO's Conversion to Ministry

Parliament voted against the bill to convert Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization to a ministry in an open session on Sunday. 
The outlines of the plan failed to pass the legislature, with 139 affirmative and 63 negative votes and 14 abstentions out of 232 lawmakers present at the session. 
Due to its financial requirements, the bill needed two-thirds of the votes plus one for approval, a threshold it did not manage to reach, IRNA reported. 
Under the proposal, all the properties and human resources of ICHHTO as it is were to be transferred to the new ministry.
