Although the controversial Ahmadinejad's chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei has rejected reports on his resignation as spread rumors, some influential figures in the principlist fraction of Iranian Parliament (Majlis) observe the issue differently.

A lawmaker who critically observes the economic practices of the government refused to directly comment on Rahim Mashaei. They simply told Khabar Online correspondent: "We regard him as a spent force." 

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the leading member of a principlist party backing the administration in the Parliament has also asserted: "The problem of Mashaei is going to be resolved." 

It seems that the government is waiting for a convenient time to remove Mashaei without being in the media spotlight. 

Mashaei's controversial statements in various past occasions, for example on the possibility of a friendly relation between people of Iran and Israel have sparked the anger of top Iranian authorities. 

After the June election, Ahmadinejad appointed him as the first Vice-President. But several officials, above them Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei opposed the choice, forcing him to replace Mashaei by Mohammad Reza Rahimi. 

Delivering a lecture, he recently commented on the mission of the prophet Noah (S), saying that despite living so long, he was not able to implement justice for his nation. His remarks were criticized by clerics and religious experts.
