The Lao Front for National Construction (LFNC) (Lao: ແນວລາວສ້າງຊາດ Neo Lao Sang Xat) is a Laotian popular front founded in 1979, and led by the Lao People's Revolutionary Party. Its task is to organize Laotian mass organizations and other socio-political organizations. In 1988, its tasks were expanded to include certain ethnic minority affairs.[1] It is also in charge of religious affairs; all religious organizations within Laos must register with the LFNC.[2]
