La stabilità istituzionale come principio supremo dell’ordinamento iraniano nelle misure di contrasto al Coronavirus: fra norme costituzionali e interventi extra ordinem
Institutional stability as supreme principle of the Iranian legal system in the measures against the Coronavirus: between constitutional norms and extra ordinem interventions
The management of the Covid-19 emergency by the Islamic Republic of Iran must be studied in the light of the characteristics of its legal order, which show an interpenetration between religious and secular factors. This emerges from the Supreme Council of National Security’s action, whose decisions require the only approval of the Supreme Guide without a parliamentary control. The way in which the Council exercises its
power suggests that only apparently the supreme principle of the system is identifiable in the Islam, but rather in the stability of the State; the religion, thus, appears functional to justify the political decision.
