INU- Numerous news outlets on Wednesday reported on the Iranian parliament’s rejection of Hassan Rouhani’s third nomination to fill the post of Minister of Science, Research, and Higher Education. The previous occupant of the position was removed by parliament in August over concerns that he was loosening restrictions on student demonstrators. The rejection of his potential replacement is generally regarded as another defeate for Rouhani.
