LONDON, Jan 26 (IranMania) - Iran's President Mohammad Khatami proposed Mohammad Rahmati to Majlis on Tuesday to take the post of Minister of Roads and Transportation which has remained vacant since last October.

In a letter to Majlis Speaker Gholamali Haddad-Adel which was read in an open Majlis session, President Khatami introduced Rahmati to fill the vacancy created by the departure of the former Roads Minister, Ahmad Khorram, who failed to secure a vote of confidence following his impeachment on October 3, IRNA reported.

Earlier, Khatami had proposed Ahmad Sadeq-Bonab to Majlis as Roads Minister but failed to secure the legislative body's approval.

After Sadeq-Bonab's rejection by Majlis, Rahmati was appointed as the ministry's caretaker.

Before becoming acting Roads Minister, Rahmati served as deputy Roads Minister in charge of development affairs.

Majlis Vice Speaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar, who presided over the Majlis session said the issue will be debated early next week."
