This research aims to explain the process of hegemonization of justice-based conservative discourses, through the third decade of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Revolution (1380-1384). Due to the advantages of Laclau and Mouffe’s theory on systematic representation of discursive conflicts (disappearance of a discourse and emergence of another), we used this theory as an efficient theoretical framework and as a research methodology strategy for our present work. In competitive processes and based on the context developed by insecurities and mutability of the reformist discourse, e.g. issues in political and cultural arenas, negligence in economic domain, disagreements on theoretic and operational meanings of major concepts of discourse, etc., justice-based conservative discourse managed to provide the requirements of marginalization of reformists and deconstruction of some of their major concepts, such as reforms, people, law, etc. This was the result of a sequence of wins starting by the second round of city council election in the end of 1380s, followed by the seventh parliament election in the end of 1382 and the presidential election in 1384. In this period, the conservative discourse was able to create a new semantic order through which not only were the previous government criticized and their defects and inefficiencies in justice-based attention and security of people’s welfare and economic needs were mentioned, but also they attempted to deconstruct concepts and meanwhile increase self-accessibility and reputation in public thoughts. Finally, this discourse dominated the political sectors of the country for some years as the hegemonic discourse.
