Nedaye Iranian Party (Persian: حزب ندای ایرانیان‎, lit. 'Voice of Iranians')[2]NEDA is the official acronym standing for 'Second Generation of Reforms'[3] (Persian: نسل دوم اصلاحات‎, translit. Nasl-e Dovom-e Eslahat)— is a reformist political party in Iran with social democratic leanings[4] that held its first congress in 2015.[5]

It was the first party that emerged after the reformist crackdown during 2009 Iranian presidential election protests, followed by the Union of Islamic Iran People Party.[2] The majority of members belong to the youth wing of banned Islamic Iran Participation Front[6] and are in their early 30s.[2]

The party was in coalition with the Pervasive Coalition of Reformists during Iranian legislative election, 2016.[7]
