Ahmadinejad sacks health minister

Dec 27 2012, 3:12pm CST | by

Tehran, Dec 28 (IANS) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sacked Health and Medical Education Minister Marzieh Vahid-Dastjerdi, the first woman minister in the Islamic Reublic, Xinhua reported.

Tehran, Dec 28 — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sacked Health and Medical Education Minister Marzieh Vahid-Dastjerdi, the first woman minister in the Islamic Reublic, Xinhua reported.

Vahid-Dastjerdi, who became an Iranian minister in September 2009, has been replaced by Mohammad-Hassan Tariqat-Monfared, who has been appointed the acting minister of health in a decree by Ahmadinejad.

According to semi-official Mehr news agency, the conflicts with Vahid-Dastjerdi started after some governmental officials, probably including the Iranian president, urged her to fire the chief of Tehran Medical Science University. But she refused to comply.

Also, she recently criticised the government for not allocating enough foreign currency for the imports of medicine, a claim Ahmadinejad rejected.
