Popular Front governments formed in France and Spain in the 1930s. (See Léon Blum[?]).

The government of the former state of East Germany presented itself as a de facto Popular Front: a "National Front" of all anti-fascist parties and movements within parliament (Socialist Unity Party of Germany, Liberal Party, peasants' party, youth movement, trade unions, etc).

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine preserves a self-image of multiple groupings united in a common cause of self-determination.
