The process of policy making and legislation are considered as the most important arenas public decision making in the society. Making optimal decisions depends on following logical decision making principles. These principles that are applicable in all decisions are more important in public decision making. On the other hand, since policies and laws of our country are made in two important and influential institutions namely Expediency Council and Islamic Consultative Assembly, investigation of decision making process in these two institutions may reveal problems as well as practical and executive challenges in the way of making appropriate and suitable decisions. It seems that more attention to practical results of a law or policy, existence of a comprehensive legislative management to coordinate different parts of three branches which are influential in decision making process as well as counseling and inclusive participation of elites and experts will be effective in improvement of public decision making.
