Debate over cabinet nominees

"Sixteen nominees have no experience"

AFP: Iran's conservative-dominated parliament resumed a debate for the second straight day on Monday on cabinet nominees proposed by embattled President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state radio said. The three-day debate on the 21-member cabinet line-up began on Sunday with several powerful conservative lawmakers dealing a blow to Ahmadinejad by openly opposing his nominees. "Sixteen nominees have no experience required for the ministries they have been nominated for," said top conservative MP Ahmad Tavakoli as parliament kicked off the debate on Sunday which culminates Wednesday in a vote of confidence. His views were backed by some other top conservative MPs, a sign of increasing opposition to Ahmadinejad's plans even from his own support base.

You gave them way too much Credit!!!

Dear Emil,

You have given these idiots way too much Credit!!!

The incompetence of these people goes way beyond an Islamic Barn. These guys make a Pig Sty look like the Cleanest Room in the Waldorf or Ritz.

The other Mehdi is talking about the haters of this Gang of thugs and their leader, and I have just one thing to say to you. Either go to Iran as I did a couple of monts ago and see for youself how HORRIBLE things are due to the shear incompetence of these Morons, or JOIN THE 21ST CENTURY and stop defending the indefensible.

It seems to me that you (Other Mehdi) are still living in the 1970s and are totally detached from the realities of Iran today. People are simply fed up and are not buying this load of Manure any more, therefore wake up and smell the coffee (or Tea).

Salutations to all of the TRUE Sons and Daughters of Iran.

American Dream

Does it really matter who he picks?

by American Dream on

Iranian President Ahmadinejad is in his 2nd term.  Does it really matter who he picks?  The ultimate decision maker in Iran is Ayat'Allah Khamenei.

The constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran's preamble states:

"The Wilayeh of the just faqih

In keeping with governance and perpetual necessity of leadership, the Constitution provides for the establishment of leadership by a qualified faqih, recognized as leader by the people.

Such leadership will prevent deviation from authentic Islamic duties by the various organs of the State."

What does that mean?

All the roads in Iran lead to the present faqih, Ayat'Allah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

Is this what Iran has become under these elected representatives? Press a button and speak in parliament in language that Gholchomaghs speak? Which people do these representatives represent? They sound like the most intellectually inept people sent to the parliament.
