    A referendum on creating an Islamic Republic was held in Iran on 30 and 31 March 1979. The referendum asked "Islamic Republic Yes or no?". Although some groups objected to the wording and choice and boycotted the referendum, it was approved by 99% of voters.

    Following this victory, the 1906 constitution was declared invalid and a new constitution for an Islamic state was created and ratified by a referendum in December 1979. The new constitution consisted primarily of the ideas Khomeini presented in his work Islamic Government: Governance of the Jurist.
