Immediately after the issuance of the constitutional order, the Electoral Code was developed and approved to determine the mechanism for holding the first national assembly elections. Guild and class elections were based on this Electoral Code. The guild-based nature of the elections was closely related to the role played by different social classes in the Constitutional Revolution coming to fruition. Despite the criticisms posed against the Electoral Code, it opened the path to political participation as the first experience on the path to democracy. After Tehran, Tabriz was the second city that set out to hold an election. Public and civil institutions in Tabriz took the responsibility for holding the elections. Despite the problems and ambiguities involved, the first national assembly elections in Azarbayjan  is considered as a defensible, progressive and helpful experience in realizing the promise of public participation and the right to determine the country’s political and social destiny. The present study is an analysis of the Electoral Code and the elections process in Azarbayjan, Iran, as a central issue in the first democratic experience in Iran and Azarbayjan based on original sources.
Keywords: Constitutional Revolution, Electoral Code, National Assembly, Azarbayjan, Tabriz Association
