This page ought to be updated to reflect the results of the 2005 presidential election. Could someone be kind enough to do it?
Unfortunately I don't have the time at the moment to do a thorough correction, but the part about parties is definitely misleading. The groups mentioned in the table (Green Movement, Alliance of Builders etc.) are definitely not parties as in the definition used in political science. They are important and influential power groups in Iran, but they are not parties.
Hooshang Amirahmadi 
I removed the section about Hooshang Amirahmadi as the citation provided was not operable and the wording suggested a pro-Amirahmadi POV, and thereby a violation of NPOV. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:31, 13 January 2009 (UTC) pie
Clean up tag 
The article needs some clean up. Each of Iran's government branches now have their own pages. Yet it is hard to navigate thru them from here, which should be the starting point.
Also the information is not presented in a concise, organized manner. The main page of Iran has a good section on politics in Iran, which could be used to make this page's organization of topics.
Somebody please take up this task. Im busy elsewhere for the time.--Zereshk 02:09, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Wrong Link 
This page shows the Telecommunications ministry to be at www.dci.ir
DCI is in fact Datacommunications of Iran, which is a subsidiary of the government telephone company, TCI (www.tci.ir, Telephone Company of Iran). TCI itself is not the same as the actual Telecommunicaitons Ministry, the link for which I don't have, but I'll try to get it.. --Commking 06:33, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
The page says "In February 2004 Parliament elections, the Council of Guardians banned thousands of candidates, including most of the reformist members of the parliament and all the candidates of the Islamic Iran Participation Front party from running. This led to a win by the conservatives of at least 70% of the seats. Approximately 60% of the elegible voting population participated in the elections", which is fair enough but this reflects badly on the situation of democracy in Iran when it is not mentioned that in the more recent June 2005 elections they did not do this.
What are current "hot topics" in Iranian politics, especially domestic politics? -- Beland 09:24, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
There should be an article about political groups and parties in Iran, but the content of this article is more relevant with "Government of Iran". So the article should remained with different content.--Sa.vakilian 08:47, 10 February 2007 (UTC) ok then, we have a List of political parties in Iran and will have Politics and Government of Iran --Gerash77 05:38, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
Section move 
I'm going to move the subsection on "Criticism" to the bottom of the page in its own section. It seems more appropriate to list criticism after actually giving details about the system, and this is usually done for criticism sections. The Behnam 06:19, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
previous governments 
Would it be possible to have this article, which seems to deal exclusively with the current government, have a pointer to whatever article describes the previous systems, if such an article can be found? Like in the "See also" section, or something. TIA,

Criticism of the system 
In the last paragraph it says: "Neither of these two laws are mandated by the constitution and are ordinary laws passed by the Parliament or the Assembly of Experts , which therefore can theoretically be reversed." What does that mean? Which are "these two laws"? The paragraph doesn't make sense because no "two laws" are mentioned in the previous paragraph.

I removed the paragraph, the comment seems to have been trunkated, her it is: Removed paragraph, discuses two unspecifyed laws, acording to talkpage the problem has existed since 2007. The sources gives 404 error.
Poor source citation 12 
Can radio free Europe be considered an unbiased source of info? The article linked to cites no sources, nor does it say where it obtained any information. Does this warrant removal? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:28, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
- I fully agree. RFE is definitly not unbiased. it would definitly warrant a removal.--Lexiko (talk) 23:44, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Important notice 
The government section of the "Outline of Iran" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.
When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.
Please check that this country's outline is not in error.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .
