Abstract: 
The political atmospheres are always replete with fluid signifiers. Generally the political discourses are formed to signify these signifiers. Hence we always observe rival discourses. These discourses try to articulate the fluid signifiers within their own identity. The outcome is discursive rivalry which will not last long and finally one discourse will become the hegemonic one. After 1941 Iran witnessed a discursive rivalry between few political discourses. These discourses were trying to articulate such fluid signifiers as progress, development, freedom and democracy, social justice, and rejection of colonial domination within the framework of their identity. One of these discourses was that of the Islamic government which was led by Imam Khomeini'. In this rivalry the discourse of Imam Khomeini finally became the hegemonic discourse. The present article is an attempt to discuss the reasons for this discourse to become hegemonic.
