Popular Alliance (Spanish: Alianza Popular) was a political coalition of two of the oldest and historically recognized political parties in Peru, the Peruvian Aprista Party (PAP), led by former President Alan García, and the Christian People's Party (PPC), led by Lourdes Flores. The alliance was made by mutual agreement by both leaders with the objective of leading García for a third non-consecutive presidential term in the 2016 general election. The third member of the coalition was the minor political party Go Peru (VP), led by Mayor of Callao Juan Sotomayor.
