TEHRAN – In a letter submitted to the parliament on Monday, President Hassan Rouhani named Saeed Namaki as the new health minister, ISNA reported on Monday.

Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said the MPs should study the biography and plans of Namaki, before he appears in the parliament for vote of confidence next week.
