The ITF is a coalition of the following political parties:
In the Iraqi legislative election, December 2005, the ITF list (#630) polled 76,434 votes, or 0.7% nationwide, according to the uncertified published results. The overwhelming majority of those votes were cast in Kirkuk Province, where the ITF won more than 10% of the total. Most of the rest of the ITF's votes were in Salah ad Din province. According to the full official results of that election, the ITF is entitled to only one seat in the permanent National Assembly.
In the aftermath of the first Iraqi parliamentary election in 2005, the ITF lodged a number of formal complaints to the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq alleging vote fraud on the part of the Kurdish parties and protesting the Commission's decision to allow Kurdish internally displaced persons and refugees to vote in the places from which they had been expelled under Saddam Hussein. In the election, they received just over 90,000 votes, or 1.1% of votes cast, earning them three seats in the trasitional National Assembly of Iraq.
In early March 2005, the ITF agreed to join the Shia-led UIA's caucus in the National Assembly according to Zaman Online, after a disappointing result in which more Turkmens seem to have voted for the UIA or the Kurdish alliance than for the ITF.
On April 28 2007, ITF held a rally in Ankara against the Kirkuk referendum and demanding a special status for the city. At the demonstration, banners that read "Vampires who drank the blood, cannibals who ate the flesh of Isa, take your hands off Iraq!" were present.
The ITF receives funding from the government of Turkey.
