Lawmakers to question labor minister

August 1, 2018

TEHRAN – The presiding board of the parliament confirmed on Wednesday that it had received a letter for impeaching Labor Minister Ali Rabiei, MP Ali Asqar Yousef-Nezhad said.

The letter for impeachment has been signed by 40 MPs, ISNA reported. 

Rabiei already appeared before parliament in March, when they voted to keep him in office.

Pressure is building on the Rouhani administration as economic woes mount. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has ordered Rouhani, the speaker of parliament and the head of the judiciary to work together and find a way to resolve the problems.

On Tuesday, 200 of 290 members of parliament signed a letter to Rouhani urging him to make changes to his economic team.
