Who is ruling iran?
I dont understand that countries politics.
Is the president Ahmadinejad the one calling the shots or is Ayatollah Khamenei the one with the power?
Can Khamenei overrule anything the president does if he wants to
Whats the point with a election if the elected is just a puppet under a tyrant anyway.

in other words the islamic regime cannot be changed , but the policies of the islamic regime are variable parameters.

Contrary to popular belief, there is a system of checks and Balances, there is also a check on the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, who is watched by 86 clerical members who are elected at 8 years at a time.
The Supreme Leader has power over the President.
But the electorate holds the greatest power.

Free elections don't constitute "pure democracy"...especially in an "Islamic Repubic" which is an overt Theocratic regime. Democracy is a multitude of different institutions (free speech, freedom of press, women's rights...not enough of it in the Arab World)

There are no free elections in Iran anyways. You can ask Arab and Kurd minorities about it!

yeah, the concept that anything other than the clerical body rules in Iran is a farce
elections? whatever. whatever the clergy says, goes.
