Amwaj: Inside story: Amid protests, talk of reform crosses political divide in Iran 

Groups of politicians from across the political spectrum within the Islamic Republic are debating reforms to Iran’s governance system amid the ongoing anti-establishment protests. Yet there are differences in perceptions of possible changes based on partisan stances. Broadly, Reformists are hoping for structural changes, while conservatives are looking at more limited adjustments.

Regardless of their political affiliation, however, all those mulling reforms are stuck between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, it is not clear whether they can overcome supporters of the status quo. Nor is it known whether any proposed reforms will satisfy a public that is hungry for fundamental change.
