Popular Conservative Alliance

The Popular Conservative Alliance (Spanish: Alianza Popular Conservadora - APC) is a right-wing conservative Nicaraguan political party. The APC split from the Democratic Conservative Party (PCD) in 1984 when Miriam Argüello led a group opposed to the PCD's position on whether to participate in elections.
