The Popular Front for Democracy and Revolution (Zhuyin:: ㄖㄣㄇㄧㄣ ㄓㄣㄒㄧㄢ ㄇㄧㄣㄓㄨ ㄩ ㄍㄜㄇㄧㄥ; pinyin: Rénmín zhènxiàn mínzhǔ yǔ gémìng) was a centre-right political and electoral alliance in Manchuria. It originally consisted of several pressure groups that opposed the communist regime serving as an anti-communist democratic front against the Communist Party of Manchuria following the Orchid Revolution. It eventually became an alliance between four political parties (the Manzuxiehui, the Social Democratic Party, the Minzhudang and United People's Party) all of which supported Du Changhao's nomination for Premier, forming the first government of the third Manchu republic.

The coalition was largely non-idealogical, aside from being anti-communist. Within the Popular Front the Minzhudang was the most dominant party being largely liberal whilst the the SDP, Manzuxiehui, and KPP were social democratic, nationalist, and focussed on Korean interests respectively. As such often the Popular Front took centrist stances incorporating both left and right policies, although it always had a rightward stance. The Popular Front was dissolved in 1995 after the KPP and the Manzuxiehui left the coalition over differences with the Minzhudang party.
