Governments, are not successful in implementation of many policies. Various
challenges, obstacles and constraints may occur and hamper the policy
implementation; but when a policy fails in implementation, only the
implementators are blamed; while policy-makers have a major role in the
(success and) failure of a policy, too. In fact, disrespect to rationality in policy
formulation can lead the policy process to failure in implementation. In this
study, according to Ignace Snallen (2002), the concepts of rationality consists of
legal, economical, political and professional dimensions. The hypothesis of this
research is that “rationality of the policies formulated in the 7th Islamic
Consultative Assembly of Iran” differs to “the optimum/ideal rationality that,
leads us to a successful implementation”. The necessary data were gathered
from the experts by questionnaire, and analyzed by statistics tests. Data analyses
confirmed the research hypothesis. It is concluded that disregard to the desirable
composition of rationalities has led the to unsuccessful implementations of
policies processes.
