Democracy is one of the best practices in the governance of the world. Although this approach has met with some criticism of the ruling party in the world today but has not yet found a replacement for it. It seems that the legal system of the Islamic Republic of Iran has used a combination of democracy, that democracy and religious practices. In this way, it is believed that democracy does not conflict with religious principles can be established for a reconciliation between the two. However, this technique has been crystallizing in Iran today in the principles of the constitution. However, this mechanism is faced with a series of restrictions on the Iranian legal system. These limitations can be examined from both individual and collective. This paper has attempted to explain these limitations by an overview of some of Iran's constitution and statute.
