In a letter to Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Saturday, Rouhani proposed Reza Ardakanian and Mansour Gholami for the positions of minister of science, research and technology and minister of energy, respectively.
On August 20, all the ministerial nominees, except the one for the Energy Ministry, managed to win a vote of confidence from Parliament, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Habibollah Bitaraf failed to win a vote of confidence when 133 lawmakers, out of a total of 288, opposed him.
The post of minister of science, research, and technology has also been vacant.
President Rouhani submitted the list of his ministers to Parliament on August 8, three days after his swearing-in ceremony.
