The party formed for the 2011 election as a merger between the Ceutan Democratic Union (UDCE) and the Socialist Party of the People of Ceuta (PSPC). The coalition won 4,404 votes (14.34%) in the 2011 elections, earning 4 of the 25 seats in the Ceuta Assembly, making it the second-largest party after the People's Party (PP).[1] The coalition aims for the official recognition of Moroccan Arabic in Ceuta.[2] The coalition, through its two member-parties, was endorsed with the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) until July 2013. The split came from differences of opinion over controversial comments towards women, made by a local Muslim cleric.[3]
