The article focuses on political situation of Iran. After several years of relative eclipse, Iran returned to the world's headlines during the summer of 1960 and since then has continued periodically to catch the world's attention. It began with the election of a new Majlis, or National Assembly, the first in four years. New elections were held in midwinter, but, in the people's view, with no better methods and poorer results. In protest the National Front generally boycotted the elections, calling them a sham. The Shah opened parliament in February 1961. It was soon apparent, however, that with few exceptions the deputies were of the traditional type, manoeuvring for patronage and the spoils of office, hamstringing the best efforts of government, which they ungratefully and glibly harassed, though not from any basic stance of principle. Within the framework of existing restraints, public dissatisfaction was relatively articulate, it included some vigorous demonstrations by students, and reached its climax in a widespread teachers' strike.
