Association of Combatant Clerics


Published 26th January, 2012

The Association of Combatant Clerics or ACC was established in March 1988. It describes itself as centrist and believes in moderate Islamism and reformism.

The party scored success in the 1988 election when it took 161 of the 270 seats in the Majlis or parliament. They also did well in the 1992 election, winning 150 seats, but after that do not appear to have featured greatly.

In 2007 the party advocated limits on clerical power in Iranian politics and extending individual freedoms. They are, however, not in favour of secularism or liberalism.
