Report: Iran labor minister steps down

Iran’s minister of labor is reportedly slated to leave office, the first ministerial resignation in President Ebrahim Raisi’s government less than a year since he took office.

According to Tasnim News Agency, Hojjat Abdolmaleki has already submitted his resignation from the post.

Tasnim says Raisi is going to accept Abdolmaleki’s resignation and will likely designate Mohammad Hadi Zahedivafa, who is currently deputy first vice president for economic coordination and supervision, as caretaker labor minister.

The chair of the parliament’s social commission had earlier said the resignation of Abdolmaleki is just a rumor.
