The Popular Front for Change and Liberation (Arabic: الجبهة الشعبية للتحرير والتغيير, Al-Jabha al-Shaabia lil-Taghyer wal-Tahrir) is a coalition of Syrian political parties and is the leader of the political opposition in the People's Council of Syria, the state's unicameral parliament. Coalition leader Qadri Jamil stated that there had been numerous violations in favor of their opponent, the National Progressive Front, in the 2012 parliamentary election. The Popular Front for Change and Liberation brought together Jamil's People’s Will Party, Ali Haidar's Syrian Social Nationalist Party, and others.
Although ostensibly an opposition party, both party leaders are closely aligned with the Ba'ath dominated National Progressive Front. They have criticized the ruling party on occasion however, particularly after the 2012 parliamentary election, when Qadri Jamil questioned the transparency of the vote and considered giving up his seat depending on the government's response, and a member of the SSNP complained about the Ba'ath party's domination of parliament.
