Iranian president nominates new individual as education minister

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has nominated Reza-Morad Sahrayi as the new minister of education, more than a month after the previous minister resigned.

Raisi nominated Sahrayi in a letter to Parliament Speaker Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf, pending a vote of confidence at the legislature.

Former Minister of Education Yousef Nouri resigned on April 3 after an outcry over a delay in paying teacher salaries.

Reza-Morad Sahraei was appointed caretaker minister at the time.

Following the delay in paying the teachers, Raisi ordered First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber to investigate the case.
