Iranian opposition leader, Mehdi Karroubi's Etimade-Milli party will officially resume its activity in the near future, the party's deputy chairman Rasul Montajabnia said on Jan. 11, Fars news agency reported.
It should be noted that the secretary general of the party, Mehdi Karroubi is being kept under house arrest.
Montajabnia said the Etimade-Milli party will hold a congress and resume its activity.
"The party's activity has been suspended for several years and no congress has been held. The country's interior minister invited Etimade-Milli party to the recent meeting too and we decided to resume our activities," the party's deputy chairman said.
The secretary general of the party, Mehdi Karroubi and Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who protested against the results of 2009 presidential elections in Iran, have been under house arrest together with their spouses since early 2010.
Following the start of house arrest, Karroubi closed the party's office. The party's official activities were suspended due to differences between the party members.
