BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iran to get non-cleric as speaker: "Mr Haddad-Adel was nominated by a majority of the incoming conservative MPs in an informal session.
He is a professor of literature and philosophy at Tehran University and leader of the minority conservative faction in the outgoing reformist-dominated parliament.
His daughter is married to Ayatollah Khamenei's son.
Mr Haddad-Adel has tried to give the conservatives a moderate image since their controversial victory in April.
He famously said that the main objective of the conservatives now was to turn Iran into an 'Islamic Japan'. "
