Dr. Velayati Appointed Head of IAU Board of Founders

Saturday, January 21, 2017 - 22:06

Dr. Ali Akbar Velayati succeeds the late Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani as the head of the Islamic Azad University’s Board of Founders.

According to IAU public relations, the following is the full text of the edict, issued from the office of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution on January 19, 2017.

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Honorable members of the Islamic Azad University’s Board of Founders

Following the painful loss of the honorable head of the Islamic Azad University’s Board of Founders and Trustees [Ayatollah Rafsanjani] and the lack of a provision in the charter of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution regarding the appointment of the board of founders’ president and due to the necessity to accelerate the appointment of the person holding that position, I appoint Dr. Ali Akbar Velayati- a previous member of the board- as the head of the board of founders so that from a legal point of view there will not be any hiatus in attending to the affairs of IAU, which plays a significant role in the higher education of the country.

I expect nothing less than full cooperation between the honorable members of the Board of Founders and Trustees and the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution for the purpose of maintaining the composition of the board.

Sayyid Ali Khamenei
