The Marz-e Por Gohar Party (Persian: حزب مرزپرگهر‎) (The Glorious Frontiers Party) is an Iranian nationalist political party. Their motto is "Iranians for a secular republic".


The party was founded on July 8, 1998 in Tehran, Iran. It was established by a group of secular nationalist writers and journalists and led by Roozbeh Farahanipour.

The Marze Por Gohar Party was one of the most active groups present at the pro-Democracy Iran student protests, July 1999. On the fifth day of the uprising, on July 13, MPG leaders and members were arrested and sent to the Towhid Prison, one of the Islamic Republic’s secret prisons. Due to constant threats by Islamic elements, some members of this organization were forced to secretly flee the country. Since then, the party has been forced to conduct its affairs outside of Iran.
