Iran confirms cabinet reshuffle
Iran's government spokesman has announced that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will replace the Interior and Economic Affairs ministers, Press TV reported.

After weeks of speculation about cabinet replacements, Gholam Hossein Elham confirmed there would be changes in President Ahmadinejad's cabinet within the next few days.

"Mr. President told me on Sunday that he has personally spoken to two of his cabinet members and asked them to serve the country in other positions," Elham said.

The Iranian spokesman added that Davoud Danesh-Jafari, Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance and Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi, Minister of Interior are to be replaced; however, he said the new ministers are yet to be introduced.

"The constitution of the Islamic Republic allows caretaker ministers to take office for three months until the new ministers are announced," Elham concluded.
