Mousavi removed from Iran’s Open University board

27 Apr 2010

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has removed Mir-Hossein Mousavi from the board of founders of the Open University and has issued new statutes for the university. In the new regulations, the responsibilities of the board of founders, the board of trustees and the president of the University are limited. The term for presidency of the university is now limited to four years, which is a prologue to dismissing the current president of the university, Abdollah Jasbi, who has been the president of this organization since its establishment. According to the new statutes, head of any departments that have more than five thousand students must be selected under the supervision of the government.
The move shifts the reformist make-up of the management to a more conservative leadership. The new statutes make the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution, the Ministry of Science and the office of the Supreme Leader the actual management body of the Open University. Changing the regulations of the Open University has been one of the priorities of the Ahmadinejad government. Mir-Hossein Mousavi has been removed from the board of founders of the Open University which is composed of prominent reformist figures like Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Seyed Abdolkarim Mousavi Ardebili, Abdollah Jasbi and Hassan Khomeini. The new members are all representatives of the Supreme Leader or from the office of the president.
The Open University has 375 branches all across Iran and 400.000 students are enrolled in its programs.
