Karroubi names Najafi as MPO director

MASHAD, May 31 (MNA) – Reformist presidential contender Mahdi Karroubi announced in Ferdowsi University in Mashhad on Sunday that he appoints Mohammad-Ali Najafi as director of the Management and Planning Organization (MPO) in his likely future cabinet.

Like Mir-Hossein Mousavi, Karroubi has insisted that he will immediately restore the Management and Planning Organization dissolved under the current administration.

Najafi had served as the MPO director in the Khatami administration and education minister in the Rafsanjani administration.

Karroubi also said he will name Mohammad-Reza Abasifar as presidential advisor for legal and parliamentary affairs.  Abasifar was a member of the Guardian Council and the chairman of the Administrative Justice Court.

Karroubi, a former Majlis speaker, vowed to name some other members of his cabinet, among them women, next week.

The appointments fall within an analysis that naming key members of the cabinet shows each candidate’s plans which in effect would affect potential voters’ decision.
