The Islamic Iran Participation Front (Jebheye Mosharekate Iran-e Eslaami, جبهه مشارکت ایران اسلامی in Persian) is a reformist political party in Iran. It is sometimes described as the most dominant member within the 2nd of Khordad Front.
It was led by former Secretary-General of the party, Mohammad Reza Khatami (the brother of Mohammad Khatami, the fifth President of Iran) before the election of Mohsen Mirdamadi as new Secretary-General in 9th congress. Founded in late 1998, the main motto of the IIPF is "Iran for all Iranians" (ایران برای همه ایرانیان in Persian). While still backing Islam, the state religion of Iran, the party is among the evangelizers of democracy in Iran.
In 2004, Mohammad Reza Khatami, along with other prominent members such as Elaheh Koulaei, Mohsen Mirdamadi, and Ali Shakouri-Rad were barred from standing in the parliament elections by the Council of Guardians.
The decision center of the party is the Central Council, which has thirty members. Some of the members are:
- Mohammad Reza Khatami
- Saeed Hajjarian
- Elaheh Koulaei
- Mostafa Tajzadeh
- Mohsen Mirdamadi
- Abdollah Ramezanzadeh
- Safdar Hosseini
- Ali Shakouri-Rad
- Jalal Jalalizadeh
- Ahmad Shirzad
- Hadi Ghabel
