History has showed us that development in every society depends on the elite’s political roles; hence, their viewpoints regarding socio-political programs and individuals’ needs have played a vital role in determining the fate of a specific society. Besides, the elite political culture is considered as an effective factor in political development within the realm of political sociology.
The aim of this study is to analyze the political culture of the ruling elite and its role in inefficiencies of NGOs. In fact the author has tried to show that the underdevelopment of NGOs in governments after the revolution has a close relation with political culture of ruling elite of this era .In addition to questionnaire to assess the type of political culture, their performance was examined on the basis of Gabriel Almond model. To validate the reagents, in addition to previous studies, we used the views of a number of sociologists and political science professors and after confirmation of expert community and passing the validity stage to examine the internal consistency of questionnaire items, Cronbach's alpha was obtained as 77 using SPSS software. Then, political culture was examined by assessing the political participation, political trust, citizenship rights, and tolerance. Freedom of speech was investigated in 9 components. Results reflected the fact that the culture of ruling on elite is an allegiance with thick, tough, and stable clusters closing the ways for political development. Reluctance to answer some questions and lack of proportionality among some answers with performance of this population are strong evidence in this regard.
