Ahmadinejad submits list of new Iran cabinet ministers

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has submitted a list of his proposed new cabinet to parliament, nominating current Commerce Minister Massoud Mirkazemi as the new oil minister, the ISNA news agency reported on Thursday.

A senior Iranian MP said on Thursday the assembly may reject several of the ministers proposed by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in his new cabinet, an Iranian news agency reported.

"Some of my colleagues and I ... are of the opinion that close to five ministers proposed by Ahmadinejad will not receive a vote of confidence," Vice Speaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar was quoted as saying by the Mehr News Agency.

He did not give any names of the ministers the parliament may reject.
