Tehran, Iran, Nov. 05 – Iran’s hardline-dominated Majlis (Parliament) approved the nomination of an ally of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to head the Ministry of Cooperatives.

Of the 245 Majlis deputies who took part in the vote, 155 voted in his favour, 70 voted against him and 20 abstained.

Last week, Majlis confirmed Abdol-Reza Mesri as Welfare Minister.
