Iris made his career in the state of Goiás, being City Councillor and Mayor of Goiânia, State Deputy in Goiás, State Governor for two terms, Minister of Agriculture during José Sarney government and Minister of Justice in the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso. He is married with his homonymous Íris Araújo. City Councillor in 1958, State Deputy in 1962, Mayor of Goiânia in 1965, Iris Rezende was removed from office by the military regime in 1969.

Rezende was elect Governor of Goiás in 1982, but resigned after his nomination for the Ministry of Agriculture by president Sarney. Returned to the State Government in 1991, where he remained in office until his second resignation in 1994 to run for the Federal Senate. Iris was elect and took office in 1995.

In 1997, he was invited for the Ministry of Justice by president Fernando Henrique.

In 1998, Rezende ran for Governor again, but lost the election to Marconi Perillo (PSDB). In 2002, he ran for reelection as Senator with Mauro Miranda (PMDB), but both lost their seats to Demóstenes Torres (PFL) and Lucia Vânia (PSDB).

In 2004, Rezende ran for Mayor of Goiãnia one more time, gathering 299,272 votes, or 47.47% of the valid votes, qualifying for the second round. Weeks later, he beat the incumbent Mayor Pedro Wilson (PT), with 56% of the valid votes.[1][2]

Iris was re-elect Mayor of Goiânia in the 2008 elections. On 1 April 2010, resigned to run for Governor of Goiás in the same year election. The incumbent Vice Mayor Paulo Garcia took office as Mayor. In October, Rezende was defeated again by Marconi Perillo in the second round.[3]

In February 2013, the Justice Court of Goiás reformed a 1st instance decision, acquitting Iris Rezende from the charges of administrative improbity.[4]
