Parliamentary committee votes to oust Tehran mayor

November 4, 2018

TEHRAN – Members of the Majlis Social Committee voted on Sunday against a reinterpretation of Article 1 of the law banning employment of the retired officials, and as a result Tehran’s mayor must be laid off, committee’s vice chairman said.

Mohammad Reza Badamchi said on Sunday that during a session of the committee earlier in the day, three lawmakers voted in favor and 15 against the generalities of the motion, ISNA reported.

The law to ban employment of the retired officials was passed in mid-September by the parliament and it will be implemented by November 15.
