Assyrian National Congress
Established in 1983, this group acts as an umbrella group for the Bet Nahrain Democratic Party and the Assyrian American Leadership Council. In 2002, the group entered into an alliance with the Iraqi Free Officers and Civilians Movement, headed by Najib al-Salihi to "continue the struggle towards a united democratic and free Iraq." Like the Assyrian Patriotic Party, the congress was critical of the Iraqi National Congress (INC) in the late 1990s for its neglect of Assyrians as a community in opposition to President Hussein. The political arm of the congress is the Assyrian United Front. The group's website is http://www.bndp.net/anc/.
