The Isthar Patriotic List (Arabic: قائمة عشتار الوطنية) is an Iraqi-Assyrian political list that was formed to run in the Iraqi governorate elections, 2009.

The list's biggest party is the Chaldean Syriac Assyrian Popular Council, a party founded in 2007 whose opponents claim is financially supported by the Kurdistan Democratic Party.

In the January 2009 governorate council elections, the list included:

  • Chaldean Syriac Assyrian Popular Council (CSAPC)
  • Bet Nahrain Democratic Party (BNDP)
  • Chaldean National Congress (CNC)
  • Patriotic Union of Beth Nahrain (PUBN)
  • Al-Suryan Independent Gathering Movement (SIGM)
  • Notables of Qaraqosh
  • Chaldean Cultural Society
  • The list won the reserved Assyrian seats in both Baghdad and the Ninawa, electing Giwargis Esho Sada (BNDP) and Sa'ad Tanyos Jajji (SIGM) respectively.

    The list was backed by Kurdistan Regional Government minister Sarkis Aghajan Mamendo.
