Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi
The regime-run site AREF NEWS, published by Mullah Mehdi Karoubi, former speaker of the Islamic parliament and presidential hopeful [who was eliminated from the race after "sudden changes" in the vote count], reported on the firings and nepotistic "hirings" to high positions in the Ahmadinejad administration. According to this report the main cabinet posts such as Minister of Welfare, Secretary General of the Council of Governance, Minister of Petroleum, etc. are so far only being awarded to friends and family members of friends of Mr. Ahmadinejad. Mr. Karoubi’s site urges readers to stay tuned.
