Iran’s conservative-dominated parliament has impeached the country’s transport minister, accusing him of corruption and mismanagement.

Ahmad Khorram was stripped of his post in President Mohammed Khatami’s reformist government Sunday by a vote of 188 to 58.

Two-hundred and fifty-eight members of the 290-member parliament participated in the vote. There were 9 abstentions.

In debates broadcast live on state media, lawmakers accused Mr. Khorram of failing to improve rail and road safety records. They also criticized him for awarding an airport operating contract to a foreign consortium.
