The Importance of the Assembly of Experts

The Importance of the Assembly of Experts
The Assembly of Experts is among innovational institutions in the political system of the country which was first mentioned in the basic laws when the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran was written.
*Since it decides about the highest position in the country, it is “superior to” other institutions.  
*Since it has a role at the crucial time of lack of a leader, it is in “the most crucial position” to protect the country.
*Since it must choose the leader, it has a high position in validating the government.
*And finally, because the members of the Assembly, as representatives of the people all around the country, should have in-depth religious (jurisprudential) knowledge and great political and social discernment, it is an institution comprise of the elected of the nation.    
Although the role of the Assembly of Experts is not noticeable in common activities of the country, its active presence is a reassuring support to protect the system. This Assembly prevents a crisis of the lack of leadership in the system and guarantees legitimacy of the system by keeping a watchful eye on the strategies employed to manage the country. In one hand, it observes the justice, Islamic scholarship (expertise in fiqh), courage, and prudence of “current leader”, and on the other hand, they wisely deliberate about “the future’s leader”.
