All Malaysian Indian Progressive Front

The All Malaysia Indian Progressive Front (Malay: Barisan Kemajuan India Se-Malaysia, Tamil: அகில மலேசிய இந்தியர் முன்னேற்ற முன்னனி, romanized: Aṉaittu malēciya intiya muṟpōkku muṉṉaṇi), abbrev: AMIPF, or better known just as the Indian Progressive Front (IPF), is a Malaysian political party. It is a splinter party of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) formed by its dissident leader M. G. Pandithan in 1990. The party was a component of the defunct opposition coalition, Gagasan Rakyat (GR) from 1990 to 1996, but it currently supports the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition although it is not a component member.[1] IPF had failed in its application to join BN after an objection from MIC.[2] Instead it is being considered just as a 'Friends of BN' party.[3][4][5][6][7]
