Ahmadinejad against impeachment of his minister

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says impeaching the Interior Minister, Ali Kordan, over his forged Oxford degree is ‹illegal›.
Iran’s Parliament plans to impeach Kordan after the newly-appointed minister acknowledged in a September 27 letter that he was in possession of a fake Oxford University degree. Ever since his announcement, Kordan has faced calls for resignation or impeachment from Iranian parliamentarians. President Ahmadinejad was expected to attend the Parliament’s impeachment session on November 4 to speak in his minister’s defense.

The Iranian president, however, told reporters on Sunday that he would not attend the session as he does not believe in the legitimacy of the measure against his minister.

«Ministers should only be impeached based on their performance; therefore, the interior minister’s impeachment is illegal and I will not attend the session,» President Ahmadinejad argued.

Kordan, who replaced former interior minister Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi in August, says he has pressed charges against a person claiming to be a representative of Oxford University in Tehran as soon as the authenticity of his degree was questioned.

Iran’s constitution requires the cabinet be resubmitted for approval if more than half of the ministers are replaced. President Ahmadinejad has so far replaced nine of his 21 ministers.

Amid fears that Kordan’s impeachment would threaten the cabinet, government parliamentary representative Mohammad Abbasi has been accused of attempting to bribe lawmakers with 50 million rials (about USD5,000) in a bid to encourage them to withdraw support from a motion to impeach Kordan.

Earlier on Sunday, Iran’s Majlis banned Abbasi from entering the Parliament for what the Iranian Speaker Ali Larijani described as ‹indecent› involvement in the Kordan fake-PhD affair.
