The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between organizational commitment, job satisfaction, emotion regulation and political perception. This study sought to investigate specifically, whether there is a mediating role of political perceptions between the variables. In the analysis of the data, AMOS 18.0 software was used by utilizing structural equation modeling (SEM) technique. In the study, five propositions were postulated. In the context of the study, the introduced model was tested by a questionnaire instrument with 24 items, excluding the demographic variables. Copies of the questionnaire were distributed to public and private school teachers.  A total of 308 completed copies of questionnaires were evaluated for analysis. The findings of the study indicated a positive correlation between the variables with high factor loadings. The results of this study also revealed that, political perception mediated the relationship between organizational commitment and job satisfaction. Also, private school teachers indicated higher satisfaction and commitment scores than the public-school teachers.
