Iraj Eskandari

Iraj Eskandari (Persian: ایرج اسکندری‎, b. 1908, d. 1985[1]) was an Iranian communist politician. A Qajar prince, Eskandari received French education.[1] He was a secretary of the Tudeh Party of Iran and a member of parliament.[2] In the summer of 1946 he was named a Minister of Commerce and Industry in Qavam's coalition cabinet.[3]

He belonged to the "group of fifty-three".[4] Eskandari was identified at the time as the leader of the dominant, moderate faction in the party leadership, along with Radmanesh.[5]

In 1969 the thirteenth plenum of the Tudeh Party named Eskandari the new first secretary of the party, replacing Radmanesh.[6] In 1978 he was demoted as first secretary of the party, and replaced by Nureddin Kianuri.[7]
