The informed source at President Hassan Rouhani’s cabinet told Press Shia Agency on Thursday that Bathaei has resigned.

“The resignation has been formally tendered to President Hassan Rouhani at the recent session of the cabinet,” the source added.

“The resignation has personal reasons and it is not clear whether the president will accept it or not.”
