LONDON, Dec 27 (IranMania) - Iranian President Mohammad Khatami nominated Ahmad Sadeq Bonab to head the Roads and Transportation Ministry.

Speaking at the end of an open Majlis session on Sunday, Majlis Speaker Gholamali Haddad-Adel said the president named Sadeq Bonab as his ministerial choice in accordance with Article 133 of the constitution, IRNA reported.

Ahmad Sadeq Bonab has been the caretaker of the Ministry of Roads and Transportation since October, when former minister Ahmad Khorram failed to secure the parliament's vote of confidence following an impeachment.

Sadeq Bonab earlier served as deputy Roads and Transportation Minister for economic affairs.

Khorram is now a presidential advisor."
