Iranian MPs to impeach agriculture minister Tuesday

Tasnim – Iran’s lawmakers plan to hold a session on Tuesday to impeach Agriculture Minister Mahmoud Hojjati, a member of the presiding board of the parliament said.

Akbar Ranjbarzadeh told Tasnim on Saturday that the parliament plans to stage a session on Tuesday, November 26, to impeach Hojjati.

Back in March 2018, Hojjati had survived a vote of no-confidence in the parliament.

Hajjati has served as the minister of agriculture in both administrations of President Hassan Rouhani.
