According to the House of the People website, here is Ahmadinejad’s letter:
“Mister Ali Larijani, Speaker of the Majles
In peace. I would like to retract the proposed Ministers I had published as of September 6, 2009. I am requesting that you expedite the necessary actions to implement this in Majles. Obviously, I will introduce new Ministers according to Article 133 of the Constitution soon.”
