National Trust Party (Persian: حزب اعتماد ملی‎), also translated as National Confidence Party, is an Iranian political party based on reformist and populist message.[1] NTP was established in 2005 by former Parliament speaker Mehdi Karroubi following his controversial defeat in 2005 presidential election. The party also publishes a newspaper of the same name (Etemad-e Melli), which was banned by the Iranian judiciary on August 16, 2009 after the newspaper reported Karroubi's claims that some election protesters were raped while in custody.
