Gano Forum (Bengali: গণফোরাম), literally People's Forum, is a political party in Bangladesh. GF was formed through a split of the Awami League and the merger of civil society groups in 1992. The party is headed by one of its founders, the constitutional lawyer and international jurist Dr. Kamal Hossain.[2]

The current Bangladeshi finance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith once served as General Secretary of party. After the death of Saifuddin Ahmed Manik in 2004,[3] Mostafa Mohsin Montu has since served as the General Secretary.[2]

Veteran politicians such as Advocate Zahirul Islam (former Member of Parliament) and Mr. Mafizul Islam Khan Kamal (former Member of Parliament) are a part of Gano Forum. Mr. Mafizul Islam Khan Kamal is the Executive President of the Party.
