Iran's parliament has voted to sack the finance minister, dealing another blow to President Hassan Rouhani as he faces mounting discontent over the economy.

Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani says 137 out of 260 lawmakers present voted against Karbasian on Sunday.

Critics of Rouhani's government say it squandered the opportunities presented by the nuclear deal, which now looks increasingly moribund after the U.S. pulled out of the agreement in May and began reintroducing sanctions.

"Wrong decisions have harmed the people and led to individuals looting public assets", he added.

In early August Iranian lawmakers voted out the minister of labor and last month President Hassan Rouhani replaced the head of the central bank.

Rouhani faces renewed pressure: Hard-liners in Iran's parliament have blamed the crisis on Rouhani, a relative moderate, who was re-elected a year ago.

Protests linked to the tough economic situation in the country began last December, spreading to more than 80 cities and towns and resulting in 25 deaths.
