Source: Radio Zamaneh

The Iranian president has appointed two women to the position of governor in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan. Massoumeh Parandvar is now serving as the governor of Hamoon, while Homeira Rigi, with a history of leadership roles in the health and interior ministries, is now governor of Qasreqand.


A recent report by Shargh daily listed Iranian women appointed to various posts across the country
 

The Mehr News Agency describes Parandvar as a graduate in Urban Planning with 14 years of leadership roles in the provincial governments of Sistan-Baluchistan and Northern Khorasan.

Currently, Sistan-Baluchistan is a leader in terms of women's representation in senior executive positions.

Zahra Arbabi, the head of Hassan Rohani's campaign headquarters in Sistan-Baluchistan, was appointed as the Deputy of Human Resource Development and Management, and Sameih Baluchzehi, with a background in natural resource engineering, became the first women to become a mayor in Sistan-Baluchistan.

Media reports indicate, however, that among senior officials and legislators in Sistan-Baluchistan, women represent only 16 percent.
