    The list of cabinet members received mixed reactions from the Iranian press. Reformist dailies mostly expressed positive statements about the nominated cabinet members whereas Shargh, another reformist paper, regarded the list both satisfactory and unsatisfactory, claiming that it includes a “non-partisan and moderate government” featuring figures from all political parties. Kayhan, on the other hand, criticized the nomination of oil minister, Bijan Namdar Zanganeh.

    On 8 August 2013, three international organizations, namely Reporters Without Borders, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, and Human Rights Watch, requested the withdrawal of Mostafa Pourmohammadi''s nomination for the post of justice minister due to his controversial past tenure. Revolutionary Guards Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari criticised Rouhani''s administration in December 2013: "The military, systems and procedures governing the administrative system of the country are the same as before, has been slightly modified and unfortunately infected by Western doctrine, and a fundamental change must occur. The main threat to the revolution is in the political arena and the Guards cannot remain silent in the face of that."
