United Front (China)

"United Front (China)" redirects here. For the united fronts between Communists and Nationalists against the Japanese during World War II, see First United Front and Second United Front.

The United Front in the People's Republic of China is a nominally popular front led by the Communist Party of China. It is managed by the United Front Work Department (Chinese: 中共中央统战部) of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and besides the communist party it consists of eight minor parties and the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce. Its current department head is Du Qinglin.

The United Front is represented together with other mass organizations such as trade unions, women's and youth organizations, minorities etc. in the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

The United Front holds no real power independent of the CPC.[1] It serves a merely symbolic function and its leaders are mostly selected by the Communist Party of China or are themselves CPC members.[2] The member parties are almost completely subservient to the CPC, though they have nominal representation in the National People's Congress.
