Apparent résumé-padding by a newly appointed cabinet minister is causing division among President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's supporters and may force him to submit the cabinet to a review by the Iranian parliament, which is led by one of the president's key political opponents.

What's more interesting is that if Kordan is impeached, he would be the critical eleventh minister to go and so tip the balance. In other words, Ahmadinejad's successful cleansing of his government during the past three years could be his end.


What a shame!

President Ahmadinejad performed yet another miracle: He selected someone as interior minister who claimed to have a Ph.D. degree in law from The University of Oxford! When questions rose on the authenticity of the degree, the guy outraged, threatened the media and produced this to shut them up. A degree so suspicious that is feared to be faked, with grammar mistakes and with names signing it who are not even members of the Faculty of Law! If Ahmadinejad wants to fake the next election, he'd better employ someone who does it less obviously.


Wait & see

The article is very interesting. I didn’t know that Mahmoud would be forced to change its entire cabinet if the half of his 21 ministries gets impeachment. Well, the count is not far from the dead-zone …
