Iranian MPs vote to impeach minister

Iranian lawmakers have voted to impeach Seyyed Reza Fatemi Amin, the Minister of Industry, Mines and Trade over his poor performance that saw the skyrocketing car prices.

During the parliament session on Sunday, out of the 266 MPs participating in the voting, 162 lawmakers voted for the impeachment, 102 voted against with 2 abstentions. There were also 6 invalid votes.

Fatemi Amin had survived a similar impeachment last year.

Earlier an Iranian lawmaker had claimed that his colleagues at the parliament were bribed to drop an impeachment bid against Fatemi Amin.
