Rouhani to Introduce His Cabinet at Inauguration - MP

Rouhani reportedly will introduce his cabinet during his swearing-in ceremony on August 4, Member of Majlis Ramezan-Ali Sobhanifar said today. (IRNA/Press TV, 27 July)

The swearing-in ceremony will be held one day after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei  officially endorses Rouhani’s victory in a separate ceremony.

Rouhani is expected to introduce a coalition government, comprising of ministers representing different political leanings. The most sensitive cabinet posts (including Intelligence, Defense, Oil, Interior), as well as the Secretary of Supreme National Security Council who acts as chief nuclear negotiator, need to have Khamenei’s approval, or at least his lack of objection, before Rouhani could introduce his choices. Who would occupy those posts will be the first major indication of how much leeway and independence Rouhani would have to shape the internal and foreign policies of the country in his first term.
