The Egyptian Front (Arabic: الجبهة المصرية‎, romanizedal-Gabha al-Masreya) is an alliance of political parties contesting the 2015 Egyptian parliamentary election in a joint list with the Independent Current Coalition, called Egypt.[3]

The alliance was established on 17 August 2014.[4]

Former presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabahi has criticized the alliance by stating that it represents "Mubarak-era politics".[5] The Modern Egypt Party withdrew from the coalition.[6] The Tagammu Party is not part of the coalition.[7] The Egyptian Patriotic Movement[8] and the My Homeland Egypt Party left the alliance and joined the For the Love of Egypt coalition[9] following a failed attempt to merge the For the Love of Egypt coalition and the Egyptian Front.[10] Both of the parties are no longer part of that alliance[11] and instead joined the Egypt alliance.[3]
