Khomeini's son expected to be named premier

President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr is expected to nominate a prime minister today (July 23), who will require the endorsement of the Majlis, the Iranian parliament. State radio said Tuesday the clergyman son of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, was the President's first-choice candidate. Political sources had been saying Education Minister Muhammad Ali Raja was most favored for the post.

President Bani-Sadr, who took office in early February, was formally sworn in Tuesday at a special session of the Majlis.
