In the third millennium, much management and governance was left to the people themselves. In other words, in the age of globalization, except for specific issues such as foreign policy, it should be left to the people and civil institutions such as councils. Because on the one hand, the responsibility of the citizens increases, and on the other hand, the costs of managing the country are reduced, and also the government intervenes minimally in the affairs of the citizens. In this regard, city and village councils as a symbol of non-governmental governance in most countries, including Iran, is an objective form of existence. The main purpose and question of this article is the legal-political status of councils in Iran. In response to various institutional issues, the position of councils in the constitution, council resolutions, the relationship between councils and the Islamic Consultative Assembly, the supervisory role and how council resolutions are implemented, and managers' attitudes toward councils have been examined. It has also been addressed that the existence of ambiguity and legal and political challenges of the councils has caused the approvals of the councils to face challenges, at least at the macro level of management of the country and society.
