The purpose of transparency is to provide people with the right , have information, account for officials, participate in the public and reform problems and structures, and to prevent corruption. So, the generalization of transparency in the election, which is one of the most common means of achieving power in democratic systems, can be justified. The transparent electoral system expresses the actions and decisions available for the public and helps to make the election actors responsible for there decisions . On the basis of the transparency in the election, it can include election candidates and observers and executives together. In election policies as an upstream document, the intent of the transparent electoral system has been drawn to promote the country's electoral system to achieve a favorable situation. therefore , this article seeks to answer the question in a descriptive-converter way: "How much the legal status of the presidential election is to provide the provisions of the general election policies in the field of transparency?" Investigating the above policies, it was found that the laws of the presidential election have deficiencies that need to be revised and amended with these policies.
