That somebody would be the Ayatollah and the Republican Guard.

If the reformists actually managed to gain proper power, then they would be the ones that lose out. The Republican Guard basically run all of the major industries, and no doubt would be the first ones to start being taken down a few pegs, if the reformists got into power. The Ayatollah protects their interests and in exchange any attempt at reform is shot down by the Republican Guard.

And whilst the EVIL ENEMY is out there, they can maintain there place and status by Defending the State. Take away the enemy and they have a much harder time justifying their power...
