The method of the election of rulers and political institutions in the Islamic Republic of Iran is an issue which, so far, has been studied in different ways. Some believe it to have a number of shortcomings as compared to the liberal democratic ones. In the present paper, I evaluate the election system in Iran and compare it the that of the major democratic systems (such as that of the United States, England, and France). It seems that both of the election systems, on the basis of their foundations, have agreed on some conditions for both the elected and the electors in addition to some limitations.
