Tehran, Nov 11, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday nominated Fakhreddin Ahmadi Danesh-Ashtiani as the new Minister of Science, Research and Technology.
  In a letter to the parliament, the President introduced Danesh-Ashtiani as his nominee for the post.

The MPs will have ten days to examine the President’s choice before holding the voting session.

Majlis in a public session on October 29 turned down President Rouhani’s third nominee for the post.

Mahmoud Nili Ahmadabadi failed to obtain a vote of confidence as 160 lawmakers voted against his appointment.

Minister of Science, Research and Technology Reza Faraji-Dana was impeached and then dismissed by parliament in August.
