Iran lawmakers call foul on Ahmadinejad’s minister

(Reuters) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad angered lawmakers Tuesday when he questioned their authority, even as he finally gave in to their demand to create a sports ministry.

The latest spat between president and parliament comes after weeks of infighting about who should head certain key ministries, in what analysts say is a test of strength by rival conservative factions ahead of parliamentary elections next year that will set the stage for a presidential race in 2013.
