Hanachi confirmed as Tehran mayor

Hanachi confirmed as Tehran mayor

Iranian Interior Minister Abdol Reza Rahmani Fazli, in a decree, confirmed Pirooz Hanachi, a graduate of Tehran University, as the new mayor of Tehran, IRNA reported.

The Tehran City Council elected Pirouz Hanachi as the new mayor over two weeks ago, but his confirmation dragged on, apparently as the Interior Ministry was waiting for approval from the Intelligence Ministry.

Hanachi, 54, was deputy of former Tehran mayor Mohammad Ali Afshani, who was forced to resign after a new law forbidding retirees from holding public office.
