Objective: The present study attempts to extract and present the components of a transparent government from the perspective of Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah Khamenei. Method: This article is a qualitative method with a comparative analytical approach. Data collection tools were library and documentary studies including books, sites and specialized articles. Findings: The findings of this article showed that despite the fact that transparent government is an emerging concept, but in the theoretical literature and the policy of the Imam and the leadership, all components of this government have been emphasized. The need for freedom of information, financial transparency, accountability, oversight, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is evil, legalism and participation are clear categories of government that are emphasized in the thoughts of the Imam and the leadership. Conclusion: Through analytical and comparative study, it was found that the common denominator in the eight components of a transparent government is quite obvious in the minds of these two thinkers; In addition, the theoretical commonality in providing a solution and addressing a transparent government in each of these eight components to achieve a good governance model in the Islamic Republic of Iran is quite evident.
