The constitutional law of the national pact must be more consistent than other laws and no event, taste, or time should not be able to change it. That being the case, the passing time, new needs, and inefficiency of this law when facing changes cannot be kept hidden. Also, the real owners of this law are people, and governance is given to governments by people. The purpose of this research is to propose an argumentative framework to justify the acceptance of new generations’ demand right according to the requirements and functions of the law. This research asks that how can the new generation’s demand right be accepted in relation to the contents of constitutional law according to the principle of constitution consistency. Based on the presumption of the research, the demand right of new generations is accepted in the framework of inconsistent principles of the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In the present study, the descriptive-analytical method is used to investigate the relationship between generations’ demands and constitutional law. The results of this research indicate that the consistent articles of the constitution are absolutely consistent and there could be no demand issued concerning them, and demand could be issued concerning the inconsistent articles that are relatively consistent.
