The Revolution 1979 replaced monarchy with clerics-rule and religion coalesced with politics. A new political culture emerged under influence of religion that swayed political process. The emergence of a new political culture in the post-Shah period influenced political process which gave birth to a new political system. Ayatollah Khomeini became the Velayat-e Faqih (Supreme Leader) in the post-Shah period since he led the revolution. The concept of Velayat-e Faqih is derived from the Imamate system. The Velayat-e Faqih is the most powerful and dominant institution in Iran and whole Iranian system revolve around it, and all institutions derive their legitimacy from it.
