Nobakht resignation not true: government

July 25, 2018 - 21:36

TEHRAN – Presidential chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi said on Wednesday that a report that Budget and Planning Organization chief Mohammad Baqer Nobakht has resigned is not true, saying media has misquoted Nobakht.

“The head of Budget and Planning Organization has said that at whatever post the president orders, he’s ready to serve the government and nation,” Vaezi told reporters, IRNA reported.

The response by Vaezi came after Nobakht said he had resigned from all his responsibilities in order to give President Rouhani free hand to reshuffle his cabinet.
