Deputy interior minister for political affairs to be named soon

October 16, 2016

TEHRAN – Iran’s deputy interior minister for political affairs will be appointed in a number of days, according to Interior Ministry spokesman Salman Samani, ILNA reported on Saturday.

The appointment will come after a brief reshuffle in the ministry, where Hossein-Ali Amiri left his position as deputy minister and spokesman to start work as the president’s deputy for parliamentary affairs.

Following Amiri’s relocation, Mohammad Hossein Moqimi was promoted from the post of deputy interior minister for political affairs to the second-ranking person in the ministry.

Red Crescent chief Ali Asghar Ahmadi is the likeliest candidate.
