TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s conservative-dominated parliament has approved the final remaining minister in moderate-leaning President Hassan Rouhani’s Cabinet after rejecting the first three nominees for the post.

In a Sunday parliamentary session broadcast live on state radio, 199 out of 267 lawmakers voted to confirm Mahmoud Goudarzi as Sports and Youth Minister.

The confirmation completes a three-month-long process of filling out the Cabinet. Parliamentarians approved most key positions in August but objected to the nominees for several of the less powerful posts, accusing them of being too close to the opposition or lacking experience.

Goudarzi is a 58-year-old Tehran University professor in physical education planning. He is not a major figure in any political faction, although he was a member of the powerful Revolutionary Guards in the early 1980s.
