National Union Front (Iraq)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Union Front (Jabhat al-Ittihad al-Watani) was an Iraqi nationalist political alliance formed in 1954 and re-established in 1956 as a coalition of the Ba'ath Party, the Iraqi Communist Party, the Iraqi Independence Party, the National Democratic Party and later the Kurdistan Democratic Party.[1][2] The alliance supported various Arab nationalist and liberation movements across the world, supporting the governments in Egypt and Syria and supporting the Algerian liberation movement.[3] The party splintered and dissolved in the aftermath of the 1958 revolution led by Abd al-Karim Qasim after division across between Arab nationalists and Iraqi communists.[4]
