The Iraqi Accord Front or Iraqi Accordance Front (Arabic: جبهة التوافق العراقية) also known as Tawafuq is an Iraqi political coalition created on October 26, 2005 to contest the December 2005 general election. The party's members are mostly Sunni-Arabs, and its political efforts have largely been focused on protecting this community's interests. In the 2005 election, its platform called for ending the US occupation of Iraq, revision of the new Iraqi constitution, repeal of the de-Baathification laws that had cost many Sunni-Arabs their government jobs and the restoration of the Iraqi Army, which was dissolved after the US overthrow of Saddam Hussein and which had a Sunni-Arab dominated officer corps.[1]
