Electoral system of Iran

The President of Iran is the country's highest directly elected official, the chief of the executive branch, and the second most important position after the Supreme. The armed forces, Chief judiciary system, state television, and other key governmental organizations are under the control of the Supreme. It is also an informal custom that cabinet ministers for sensitive departments like foreign relations and intelligence are coordinated with the Supreme Leader. Of note, the current long-time Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who has been ruling for nearly three decades, has been issuing decrees and making the final decisions on economy, environment, foreign policy, national planning such as population growth, and everything else in Iran. Khamenei also makes the final decisions on the amount of transparency in elections in Iran, and has fired and reinstated Presidential cabinet appointments.
