Iran's Central Bank chief Tahmasb Mazaheri has resigned and is soon going to be replaced by the bank's general secretary Mahmoud Bahmani.
“Tahmasb Mazaheri has been replaced in the interim by Mahmoud Bahmani. I confirm the news. It will be officially announced tomorrow morning (Sunday),” a senior government official said on condition of anonymity.
Mazaheri, a former minister of economy and finance, was appointed to the central bank post in September 2007.
