Alternative for Change (Spanish: Alternativa por el Cambio - AC), formerly known as "Christian Alternative," is a Nicaraguan political party.[1]

It was founded by dissidents from the Nicaraguan Party of the Christian Path (CCN), most notably Orlando Tardencilla.[1] In the 2006 presidential elections, the party fielded Edén Pastora as its presidential candidate, [2] but Pastora only managed to obtain 0.27% of the vote.[1][3]
