Good governance has been considered by the intellectuals as one of the indicators of development since the last quarter of the twentieth century, and the United Nations Development Program has introduced a style called “good governance” and set indicators for it. Some writers and intellectuals have also used the same title to explain the indicators of good governance in the Islamic Republic. (History) However, by paying heed to the principles of the constitutional law and political philosophy accepted in the Islamic Republic, which is contained in the constitution and the views of Imam Khomeini (r.a) and the Supreme Leader (may Allah protect him) and its differences with the liberal principles, the development plan for determining the optimal governance model of the Islamic Republic and its indicators is a fundamental issue. (elaborating the matter). Therefore, our question is: what is the nature and macro indicators of the governance in the Islamic Republic? The hypothesis of this article is that the governance in the Islamic Republic is “convenient”. (Hypothesis) In response to the question of the research and proving the hypothesis, the method of qualitative research and interpretive paradigm and exploitation of the philosophical principles by understanding these principles and using the main sources of the Islamic Republic, namely; the verses of the noble Qur’ān and the traditions (hadiths), as well as the constitution and the views of Imam Khomeini (r.a) and the Supreme Leader (may Allah protect him) has been employed. (research method) While proving our hypothesis, we came to the conclusion that the governance in the Islamic Republic has some common indicators with good governance and some specific indicators which are firmly based on the two basic pillars; the righteous leadership and the goal of reform.
