Front of Islamic Revolution Stability (Persian: جبههٔ پایداری انقلاب اسلامی‎, translit. Jebha-ye pāydārī-e enqelāb-e eslāmī‎‎, also translated Persevering Front,[7] Endurance Front[8] and Steadfast Front)[9] is an Iranian principlist political group described as "extreme end of the fundamentalist camp" and "Iran’s most right-wing party".[10] It was established as an electoral list for the 2012 legislative election. The Front is partly made up of former ministers of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi is said to be the "spiritual leader" behind the group.[11]

In 2013, the Front supported Saeed Jalili for president after Kamran Bagheri Lankarani's withdrawal,[12] and released electoral list for local elections in several cities, with a landslide victory in Mashhad City Council.[4]
