Abolhassan Banisadr (22 March 1933 – 9 October 2021) was the first President of Iran since the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the fall of the Pahlavi dynasty. In 1980, he formed a coalition government to rule Iran. His tenure was marked by a crisis against the United States and Iraq's attack on Iran. He was indicted on June 21, 1981 by the Iranian parliament for his movement against the clergy, so he went into hiding and moved to France. In France, he continued his studies and then taught at the Sorbonne. Around 1970, he wrote extensively in the fields of politics and economics. Then he joined Khomeini and returned with him to Iran on February 1, 1979.
