The People's Front (abbrev: PF; simplified Chinese: 人民阵线; traditional Chinese: 人民陣線; Malay: Barisan Rakyat;) is a short-lived party that was registered on 21 May 1971 where some members from a faction of Barisan Sosialis (BS) that was mostly Chinese-speaking had decided to resign from BS. However, their existence was only prominent in 1972 election because by November 1976, most of its members had instead chose to join Workers' Party where the 1976 general election was held on December 1976. Eventually after 1976 general election, the few remaining party members who participated in 1976 election had decided to join United Front instead, and the party hence left dormant.
