Is Iran a Theo-democratic or an Oligarchy State ?

Theo-Democratic because the State is governed by Religious Leaders but they have election.

Oligarchy- Because Iran is run by few religious people and the majority of the people take no part in how the State is run.

What is the real deal in your opinion ?

actually he's chosen by an "assembly of Experts"...

who are publicly elected from a government screened list of possibles.

AND the Government's legislature and executive is publicly elected from lists screened and weeded out by the Supreme leader...

The "SUPREME leader" has ultimate power...

Is he limited by others?: yes

BUT ONLY limited by those "others" which he allows himself to be limited by.

HE essentially can choose who gets in the spots of Governance which can limit him.

SO if he all of a sudden makes a HUGE departure from his earlier positions his friends in government might limit him... but b/c he chose who gets in govt... one would think most of them would be of like minds with him on most things...

Iran is most definitely theocratic. They do govern using religious law afterall. Also, their last election was probably rigged so it's really not that accurate to say Iran has elections, lol.

Theo-democratic

Gods Law = The Law.

The supreme leader is decided by an electoral college not oligarchy, an oligarchy would have the electoral college ruling the state.
