Motherland Party (Iran)
Motherland Party, National Party or Patriotic Party (Persian: حزب میهن, romanized: Ḥezb-e Mihan) was a party in Iran during 1940s. It was a small organization of intellectuals and a triumvirate of three parties called Peykār (transl. Battle) Esteqlāl (transl. Independence) and Mihanparastān (transl. Patriots).
|Merger of||Battle Party, Patriots' Party and Independence Party|
|Merged into||Iran Party|
The central leadership of the Motherland Party voted to merge it with the Iran Party because of the common objectives and the approach of resistance adopted by both parties. As a result, the latter succeeded the branches and offices of the party in various cities. They later became part of the National Front.
