Views and factions

Economically, the party supports free markets and industrialization; with a high emphasis on the progress and development. [3] The party takes the view that economic freedom is fundamentally linked to cultural and political freedom, but it should not be allowed to conflict with development. [7] The party is divided into two factions in constant struggle, the more conservative " Kermani faction" led by Mohammad Hashemi Rafsanjani and Hossein Marashi and the more liberal " Esfahani faction" led by Mohammad Atrianfar and Gholamhossein Karbaschi.
