Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sparket etterretningssjefen søndag og kulturministeren gikk av. Begge hadde kritisert valget av første visepresident, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei. Men det mest interessante var at Ahmadinejad lørdag utnevnte den selvsamme Mashaei til stabsjef og nær rådgiver. Det er som å gi sine kritiere fingeren.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a decree issued on Saturday appointed Esfandiar Rahim-Mashaei as president advisor and chief of staff of presidential office.

Rahim-Mashaei had been appointed as the first vice president but his appointment triggered an uproar among the president’s supporters.

President Ahmadinejad had to annul his appointment after the Supreme Leader, in a letter published on Friday, told him that Rahim Mashaei should not hold the post.
