Iranian President vs supreme Leader: who is more powerful?

These days, there is a lot of talk about Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and supreme leader Ayatollah ali Khamenei due to their recent media attention following the Iran-Israel war. The question of which of these two leaders is superior and who has greater power is also up for dispute. The supreme leader is the most powerful person in the Iranian government according to its organizational structure. The supreme leader is still in charge in Iran. The President, the Court, the Legislature, the Guardian Council, and the Armed Forces have been positioned after him.

These are the President's and the supreme Leader's rights.

The most influential individual in iran is none other than Ayatollah ali Khamenei, who has ruled the nation as its supreme leader since 1989. He is the commander-in-chief and the head of state. He is able to command the Morality police and the National Police. The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps is under the command of the supreme Leader. The leader of the judiciary is likewise chosen by them.

After the supreme leader, the President is the most powerful individual in iran and the country's highest-ranking official. The daily operations are overseen by Ibrahim Raisi. In matters of security, the President's authority is constrained. The head of the national police force is appointed by the supreme leader, but it is administered by the President's Ministry of the Interior. The supreme Leader's statements must be embraced by the President.

Parliament has 290 elected members.

The 290 members of the Iranian parliament are chosen every four years. The country's budget is approved by parliament and draft legislation are created by it. Nevertheless, the powerful Guardian Council is in charge of Parliament. It can overturn any law by analyzing it through the lens of Sharia or Islamic law. The supreme leader appoints half of the council's members. The head of the judiciary is chosen by the supreme Leader.
