TEHRAN, Dec. 30 (MNA) – Almost a week after the demise of the late chairman of the Iran’s Expediency Council, the Leader of the Islamic Republic appointed the Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Amoli Larijani as the new head of the council.

The late chairman of the Expediency Discernment Council, Ayatollah Hashemi-Shahroudi passed away last Monday after a long struggle with cancer.

Today, the Leader of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Khamenei issued an order appointing the incumbent Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani as the new head of the Expediency Discernment Council.

Ayatollah Khamenei in the order has not only appointed Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani as the new chairman of the Expediency Council but also as a member of the Guardian Council.

The Leader of the Islamic Republic in his message expresses hope that the incumbent Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Amoli Larijani would further apply his experience at the top of the judicial system of the country to improve the activities and structure of the important and effective Expediency Council through fundamental changes.
