Tehran, July 1, IRNA – Economy Minister Ali Tayebnia was summoned to the Majlis for the second time, said a senior parliamentary said.
The summon comes as Jabbar Kochakzadeh, a member of Majlis Education Committee, said that at least 50 lawmakers have signed a motion to impeach the Minister of Science, Research and Technology Reza Faraji Dana.
The Majlis is gearing up to impeach two other ministers before the MPs go on two-week summer recess. The targets include Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian, and Agriculture Minister Mahmoud Hojjati.
Lawmakers have apparently presented the impeachment motions for Faraji Dana and Chitchian to the Majlis Presiding Board and seek to rally support for grilling Hojjati.
