Some facts about Iran 

If you are living in a country out of Asia and middle east , you might find it necessary to know more about my country Iran.

My motherland Iran is a vast country located in the middle east ,surrounded by the Persian gulf in the south, Iraq and turkey in west, Afghanistan and Pakistan in the east and former soviet union republics (Actually Azerbijan, Armenia, Turkmenistan) in the north. Iran used to have a monarchy system before 1979, governed by the Shah, but after the 1979 revolution the system changed into an Islamic republic ruled by the great faghih ( Islamic scholar ).This country has sufferd many different problems since that time ,from which I can mention the 8 year war with Iraq in which the country was badly destroyed and unfortunately after the war this destruction continued due to the mismanagement of the rulers .
Since 1979 the country is considered as an Islamic country which means ALL the rules are passed in regarding Islamic laws.Therefore, so many social rights that are considerd as basic human righs are thought to be a great sin here.
At the top of the system is the great Faghih who is a shiaati muslim scholar and is not elected by the people ( believe it or not but he is said to be the representative of God on earth ). Then is the President who is chosen directly by the people through a general election, but this is not as easy as what you might think !! The candidates are chosen beforehand by a 12-membered council who are missioned by the leader ( the official name for Faghih).So as you see the whole power is in the hands of ONE person: The leader.
The country has a parliamentary system too, but none of the laws can be passed in without the supervision of the leader.
This is a brief description of the govenmental system of Iran ;I'll try to tell you more in my next writings.

Wow it's difficult!!!!!!!!!!!!
