Top Bolivian official to attend Rohani swearing-in ceremony

Bolivian Ambassador to Tehran Jorge Rodolfo Miranda Luizaga says a senior official from his country will take part in the upcoming inauguration ceremony of Iranian President-elect Hassan Rohani.

He told IRNA on Monday that either Bolivian President Evo Morales or Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera will travel to Tehran to participate in the ceremony scheduled for August 4, one day after Rohani’s endorsement ceremony by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Mohammad Yasrebi, the director of the formalities affairs of the Majlis, announced on Sunday that thirteen heads of states, five parliament speakers, and six foreign ministers will participate in Rohani’s inauguration ceremony.

He said that the presidents of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Armenia, Lebanon, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Guinea-Bissau, Togo, and Tajikistan as well as three prime ministers, including the prime ministers of Syria and Swaziland, will take part in the event.

Yasrebi added that the parliament speakers of Russia, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Oman, and Congo will also be present at the ceremony.

Rohani won over half of the votes in Iran’s June 14 election, which was marked by a 72.7 percent turnout, to secure an outright victory.
