Iran Dismisses Dozens Of Managers Over Performance Discrepancy

Saturday, 02/24/2024

Iran's government has recently ousted numerous managers from their positions, citing "incompatibility in [their] performance with the discourse of the presidential administration."

Head of the Special Inspection Office of the presidential office, Hassan Darvishian, has announced the dismissal of "90 managers of executive organizations," noting that some were let go due to their actions not aligning with the government's positions.

Darvishian did not provide a breakdown of the dismissals based on the reasons he mentioned.

Hardliners dominating the Iranian government have been expelling officials and university professors who do not belong to their ranks, in a policy they call "purification."

The discourse of the Raisi administration, as outlined on the president’s website, is titled "Imam and Leadership Discourse," with the document referred to as the "Statement of the Second Step of the Revolution." The statement, issued by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in 2019 on the fortieth anniversary of the 1979 Revolution, has been scrutinized by critics who highlight the role of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Iran's foreign policy as a central theme.

In an interview with ILNA, Darvishian claimed that the discourse of Ebrahim Raisi's government emphasizes "purity, anti-corruption, and populism." He stated that decisions would be made if the performance of managers contradicts the discourse, emphasizing that significant actions have already been taken in this regard.

Despite the Raisi administration's assertions regarding the fight against corruption, numerous reports have surfaced revealing corruption within government departments and officials. One significant case was the Debsh Tea scandal, where the company profited from the sale of cheap foreign currency allocated by the government for importing tea and machinery at higher rates in the black market between 2019 and 2022.
