Ahmadinejad’s car auctioned

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has put up his car for auction to help a national program, the Mehr Housing Plan, aimed at providing affordable housing for low-income families.

“In a charitable move, Mr. Ahmadinejad auctioned off his [Peugeot] automobile at a gathering of the Mehr Housing Plan donors yesterday,” Iranian Minister of Welfare and Social Security Sadeq Mahsouli was quoted by IRIB as saying on Monday.

The proceeds will be contributed to the housing plan, the minister went on to say.

“The car is put up for international auction, and the [starting] price will be announced soon,” he further explained.
