Ach, es knackt und knirscht im Gebälk des iranischen Establishments….
Ein frischer Glanzpunkt, führwahr, aus dem hohen politischen Leben der „Islamischen Republik Iran“ – ehrlich überbracht von einem Staatspropagandasender. Eigentlich genügt ja, um über die „Islamische Republik Iran“ Bescheid zu wissen, die Kenntnis des Umstandes, daß sich die Repräsentanten dieser „Republik“ sowieso alle gegenseitig hassen.
In a letter sent to Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Monday, Iran’s Intelligence Ministry voiced displeasure over the move and called on Salehi to swiftly dismiss Malekzadeh, who has a criminal record, Fars News Agency reported.
During a meeting between members of Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission and the Iranian foreign minister on Sunday, Salehi was informed of the reason for the opposition of lawmakers to Malekzadeh appointment of and their plan for his impeachment.
“Apparently Salehi was not aware of this individual’s criminal record and his infringements,” Iranian lawmaker Zohreh Elahian said.
“In this meeting Salehi said the presence of a person with criminal records in the diplomatic apparatus is not in the interest of the country… therefore he will dismiss Malekzadeh if his infringements of the law are proven,” she added.
A number of lawmakers have signed a motion to impeach Foreign Minister Salehi following the appointment of Malekzadeh as deputy foreign minister.
Under the Iranian Constitution, members of the Iranian Parliament can impeach an individual minister in instances they deem necessary. An impeachment motion can be submitted if it bears the signatures of at least 10 lawmakers. (Press TV)
Die würden sich alle liebend gerne gegenseitig umbringen. Zum Hintergrund der neuesten Attacke auf Ahmedinejads Regierungstruppe:
The Foreign Ministry Dispute. Leading MP Ahmad Tavakoli has increased the pressure on the Ahmadinejad camp over the proposed appointment of Mohammad Sharif Malekzadeh as staff and finance manager at the Foreign Ministry (see 0500 GMT).
Tavakoli has claimed that Minister of Intelligence Heydar Moslehi told Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi not to appoint Malekzadeh because he is on the verge of arrest over financial irregularities. Tavakoli declared that Salehi had proposed three candidates before Malekzadeh to the President; Ahmadinejad rejected all of them.
Malekzadeh has responded that Tavakoli is spreading slander and should release documents. He claims the MP is providing a story for the enemy. (enduring america)
