“Transition to democracy” is one of the significant results of social movements. Inefficient domination using hardware method by the control system led the West to encourage liberal democracy using software method in order to change non-democratic governments, referred to as “Transition Period” or velvet revolution- The approach of Transition theory holds that change is also necessary in Iran (after Revolution). Huntington describes the emergence of reformers as a precondition for Transition Period; accordingly, the formation of reform front in Iran opened the door for fundamental changes. However, the ground was not fully prepared for this transition and change due to nature of Islamic system and its structural difference with other systems. Therefore, the current paper aims to examine the reason of transition failure in Iran using explanatory and qualitative method.
