TEHRAN -- President Hassan Rouhani accepted on Thursday the resignation of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization (CHTHO) Director Mohammad-Ali Najafi and appointed Masud Soltanifar, a member of the Tehran City Council, to the organization.
In a letter published by the presidential office, Rouhani said that he accepted the resignation due to Najafi’s insistence and for his health.
In his letter of resignation, Najafi, who is suffering from heart problems, asked President Rouhani to employ him in posts with lower levels of stress.
President Rouhani appointed Najafi as the secretary of the Economic Coordination Office.
Najafi was appointed to the CHTHO on August 17, 2013. Analysts and Iranian cultural heritage enthusiasts believed that Najafi could be the key to solve many problems caused by mismanagement of the organization over the past eight years.
