IR Parliament


The Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran or "Majlis" is housed in a modern building, shaped like a pyramid. The unicameral parliament can draft, debate, and pass legislation, but requires the approval of the Guardian Council for its decisions to turn into law. Candidacies for parliament are also approved or disqualified by the Guardian Council, which is in turn overseen by the Supreme Leader, leading to a high concentration of power at the top.
