The alliance name refers to the proposed coalition government offered by Podemos and Compromís to the PSOE in the Congress of Deputies. Such an offer was based on the agreement reached in the Valencian Community between the Socialist Party of the Valencian Country and Compromís, that made their leaders Ximo Puig and Mònica Oltra the regional premier and vice premier, respectively.[2]
