President Hassan Rouhani’s of Iran's son-in-law on Monday announced his resignation after his appointment as head of Iran’s geological survey sparked accusations of nepotism, according to IRNA.

Kambiz Mehdizadeh, in his early thirties and reportedly married to Rouhani’s daughter in a low-key wedding this August, was appointed to the senior position in the industries and mining ministry on Saturday. 

Kambiz has only worked for two days before tendering his resignation letter.

“I thank you for finding me worthy and inviting me to work alongside you in this ministry, but I ask to be relieved of my service so that I can continue my scientific and research activities,” Mehdizadeh wrote in a resignation letter, according to IRNA. 

Mehdizadeh is a PhD student in petroleum engineering, who has also served as an advisor to Iran’s oil ministry, taekwondo federation and national youth organisation, according to the conservative Tasnim news agency. 

The move has since sparked criticism on social media and from some lawmakers.
