How has Iran been ruled since 1979 revolution?

  • At top: Supreme leader, selected for life by clergymen, has final say on everything.
  • No 2: President, elected by public for 4 years, but supreme leader can overturn any decision he makes.
  • Guardian Council (12 members) - appointed by supreme leader, vets anyone standing in elections (parliamentary and presidential) and automatically disqualifies major reformists.
