The party

Mouvement du Peuple (حركة الشعب - People's Movement) was established, illegally, in 2005 by Mohamed Brahmi (1955-2013), as the Mouvement unioniste nassÚriste (Nasserist Unionist Movement) and legalized on 8 March 2011.
On 20 March 2011, Mouvement du Peuple merged with Mouvement unioniste progressiste (Progressive Unionist Movement) to form the Mouvement du peuple unioniste progressiste (MPUP). The merger, however, was contested by different members of the two parties; a member of the board of Mouvement du Peuple rejected the merger and established a new board. The two parties competed in the election for the Constituent Assembly: the MPUP obtained 36,641 votes (0.98%) but could not secure representation, while the "renewed" Mouvement du peuple obtained less votes (30,259; 0.75%) but secured two seats (out of 217).
In the aftermath of the election, the two parties merged again under the name of the winning party, Mouvement du peuple.

In July 2013, Mouvement du peuple joined the Front Populaire, which caused the resignation of Brahmi. The murder of Brahmi on 25 July 2013 caused the fall of the government led by the Islamic party Ennahdha.
