National Trust Party (Persian: حزب اعتماد ملی), also translated as National Confidence Party, is an Iranian political party based on reformist and populist message. NTP was established in 2005 by former Parliament speaker Mehdi Karroubi following his controversial defeat in 2005 presidential election. The party also publishes a newspaper of the same name (Etemad-e Melli), which was banned by the Iranian judiciary on August 16, 2009 after the newspaper reported Karroubi's claims that some election protesters were raped while in custody.
