TEHRAN Dec 22 (Shana)–The Management and Planning Organization (MPO) is poised to start work in the coming days, a presidential advisor said.
MPO was reestablished on an order by President Rouhani, seven years after the dissolution of the strategic body by his predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
In July 2007, former President Ahmadinejad dissolved the MPO and established a new budgeting body directly under his own control. Ahmadinejad’s measure sparked a flurry of criticism among political and economic circles in Iran.
