 The method of choosing managers (according to Article 107):

A public and private joint stock company is managed by a board of directors elected among shareholders and can be deposed in whole or in part. Article 107 of the Commercial Law Amendment Act, 1347, is mandatory for the members of the board of directors. But this is a requirement for the board of directors, which is one of the most important pillars of the company and the brain of the thinker and its driving engine. It's not logical. Because today, the management has turned up to a specialty, and it has been proven that most owners of companies, such as the transportation, industry and so on, with all their efforts, cannot succeed. Therefore, depriving companies of the use of such people is a kind of misleading science. Nevertheless, in order to compensate for this problem, shareholders are entitled to a share of their shares as a specialist in management so that he is eligible for membership of the board of directors. However, he is obligated to pay a royalty to him who, upon termination of the management, will return the shareholder.

The legislator has used the phrase “Administration of the company by management board” for the first time in the Commercial Law Act of 1347. But that definition has not been implemented by the directors, and only Article 107 of the bill stipulates the following: A joint venture of a board of directors elected by the shareholders and canceled by lawyers or some of them may be dismissed. It does not seem to be possible to solve the problems involved by avoiding the definition of such titles. However, the manager's definition of managers may be that managers are qualified persons who are selected by the equity holders for a specified period and who control and manage the company. Although, in accordance with Article 47 of the Commercial Law of 1311, a joint-stock company was in charge of one or more representatives (elected by the partners on the management side), and none of the provisions of the current law referred to as the board of directors of the company, but Actually, it was the board of directors of the company's affairs. Also, the minimum number of members of the board of directors of public joint stocks is determined by Article 107. As a result of the final part of this article, the members of the board of directors in public joint stocks should not be less than five, but not the minimum number of members of the board of directors of certain joint-stock companies. Article 3 (commercial code) states that the number of partners of joint stock companies shall not be less than three persons. Subsequently, Article 4 divides the company into two general types, so at least the number of members of the board of directors referred to in Article 3 should include both types of joint stock company, which is not the case, since Article 107 states the minimum number of members of the board of directors as a joint-stock company There are 5 people in general. It should be noted that there is a conflict between Articles 3 and 107 of the Act. So how can a public joint stock, which can be formed with three members, have at least 5 managers? To resolve this conflict, it can be argued that Article 107 has been incorporated into Article 3 and has been abolished by public joint stocks, thus assigning Article 3. On the other hand, since none of the article (commercial code) is current in the number of members of the board of directors of certain joint-stock companies, the members of the board of directors may not be less than three in a particular company.

As it is seen, the legislator counted at least the members of the board of directors of the companies, but did not anticipate the maximum number of them. Therefore, the number of board members of both types of joint-stock company can be any number, and this may disrupt the order of the company's management. It would seem useful if leaked legislatures were to determine the number of board members, or the proportion between the number of shareholders on the one hand and the number of managers on the other hand. Article 107 (LAS) of the joint-stock company will be governed by a board of directors elected by the shareholders of the company, which may be canceled or canceled. The number of members of the board of directors of public joint stocks should not be less than five.

Firstly, the members of the board of directors will be accepted to be members of the board. In other words, the board member cannot be elected from non-shareholders of the company.

Secondly, members of the board can be removed by the general assembly at any time. Although the article does not explicitly specify the director's dismissal, the wording of the shareholders of that general assembly is indicated. If Article 72 (commercial code) states: The general assembly of the company is formed of a shareholders' shareholder association ... Therefore, the general meeting of the company may at any time remove all or some of the board members from the director's office. It does this without any reasons. The justification for this is that the relationship between the general assembly and the board of directors is the relationship between the lawyer and the client. Therefore, the general assembly is formed by stockholders. At any time, he or she may dismiss all or some of the board members from his or her position, in compliance with the rules and procedures set forth in the law. Some business scholars also disagree with the dismissal of syntactical board members that Article 107 has agreed to foresee, and believe that the manager is a part of the company and, as you cannot resign under any circumstances, should not be canceled in any circumstances (nevertheless It is inevitable, given the usual rule of dismissal of the director, that this solution is inevitable. This group also opposes the resignation of the director.

Thirdly, a member or board members who have been dismissed by the General Assembly cannot cause the company to be wound up unless its dismissal has taken place in accordance with the general rules which would result in civil liability of the deportation authorities. Article 40 of the 40th Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran (no one can exercise their right to non-existent harm or violate the public interest). The implementation of this law, which is an example of the theory of abuse of rights, allows the offender to claim his damages. The claim for damages must be made by the courts of justice.

Fourthly, the members of the board of directors of the company are from the company's corps and are not subject to the provisions of the labor law in any way. In this way, they are not subject to the rules of the labor law, and, in general, they are not subject to management's relationship with the company. These laws do not deal with their complaints because their relationship with the board of directors with the company, there is no worker and employer relationship. And, as it has been stated, if the person or persons deprived of their claim to claim damages, they must go to the courts of justice.

We said that the members of the board may be canceled by the general assembly, in whole or in part. But the disadvantages that are practically for deposing is that public assemblies usually have the power to discuss and decide on issues that are the subject of the meeting, and the directors of the listed companies do not subscribe to this issue. In order to overcome these problems, the owners of shares have two instruments in place, such that if the shareholders are not satisfied with the board's operations, they will not approve the general meeting of the balance sheet and the company's profit and loss account. This is the title of the vote of inertia as the ratio of managers and if the business of the company is disturbed. Managers are forced to resign. Another is that one fifth of the shareholders in the arrangement of article 95 and 96. In writing, they request the General Assembly to dismiss the administrators. In this case, the board of directors is obliged to invite the general assembly to extraordinary. In this regard, it is also said that the Assembly can dismiss the Director even if his removal is not the order of the meeting.

Two other points to mention about the dismissal of one of the managers is that if he is a member of the board of directors of the company from the company's employees, his dismissal will not affect his employment relationship with the company and he will continue to work in his company. Otherwise, the dismissal of the director is not his dismissal, and he is still a member of the company.

Fifthly, the board member of the board is a steward company and cannot be divested. Therefore, managers cannot transfer their position to others. Because the company is the directors of the company, not their rights, then the assignment is not transferable. However, the regulations of joint stocks under the subject of the Commercial Law of 13111 were given to such directors. The aforementioned provisions allowed two members to appoint a member of the board of directors, one that stipulated the statute of such a position (honorarium), and that other directors also confirmed that. However, the responsibility for the person's actions was beyond the control of the directors themselves (Article 49 of the aforementioned law).

As approved in commercial code in 1347, the assignment of the management side to the Board of Directors is foreseen only by the manager of the operation. Part 1 of Article 124 of the said law requires the board of directors to appoint at least one person to be the managing director of a company. Article 1088 (commercial code): The directors of the company are elected by the General Assembly of the Founder and General Assembly.

Obviously, only the first company directors are elected by the General Assembly. The legislator does not require the formation of a general assembly of the founders in the joint stock companies (Article 82 of the aforementioned law. Usually the procedure is to select the first managers under Article 20 (commercial code) when establishing the joint stock companies. The minutes are signed and signed by all shareholders. The minutes of the meeting, together with the other documents referred to in the latter article, are annexed to the application for registration and formation of the company of the registration office of the companies.

The Clause 3 of this article stipulates: the selection of the first directors and inspectors or inspectors of the company, which must be signed by all shareholders, it seems that members of the board should be approved by all shareholders.

Now, if the company wishes to choose the board of directors through the general assembly, it is not necessary to choose the way of forming the general assembly of the founders of its board of directors. It is not necessarily the way of convening a meeting of the general assembly to be taken in accordance with article 75 of the commercial code) be done.

The article stipulates:

In the general assembly of the founders, is necessary that the presence a number of underwriters who own at least half of the company's capital is necessary, if the first majority of the above was not reached, new public assemblies are only invited by co-founders only two times.
