Elham to Become Justice Minister

A0232898.jpgTEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Head of Iran’s Judiciary Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi has decided to introduce Government Spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham to the parliament as the next justice minister of the Islamic Republic, an informed source said.

Following the painful death of the former Justice Minister the late Jamal Karimi Rad in a car accident a few months ago, judiciary officials have, after a long period of contemplation, decided to introduce the government spokesman as the next justice minister.

Political observers believe that Elham is one of the most qualified and strong elements in President Ahmadinejad’s administration.

Elham is due to also keep his post as government spokesman if approved by the parliament as the next justice minister.
