The Iranian governance: From political control to revolutionary reform

Following a number of notes published previously on challenges of governance in Iran, GPTT’s co-founder Dr. Mohammad Sadegh Emamian published a new note on the subject on IRNA’s (The Islamic Republic News Agence) website on November 11. According to him, the legal framework of the Iranian Constitution describes a multi-level and pyramid-like governance structure, which has considerable flexibility and diversity in practice due to the existence of different levels. However, the institutional arrangement of “political control governance” even in the era of post-tension and political harmony, has still made the country suffer from “political paralysis” and the phenomenon of “accumulation of procrastination.” Thus, eliminating institutional conflicts and interferences and parallel institutions, determining exclusive responsibility centers, concentrating appropriate legal powers and authorities, equipping with a package of necessary political tools, and limiting and clarifying the supervisory scope of exclusive supervisory institutions are among the necessary prerequisites for the realization of a quick, decisive, complete and risk-taking “decision-making system” in the governance of development.
