The Alternative (Arabic: البديل al-badeel) was an electoral alliance of several socialist Palestinian groups:
- Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (al-jabhah al-dīmūqrātiyyah li-tahrīr filastīn)
- Palestinian People's Party (hizb al-sha`b al-filastīnī)
- Palestine Democratic Union (al-ittihād al-dīmūqrātī al-filastīnī)
In the January 2006 PLC elections it came fourth with 2.92% of the popular vote. It had two deputies elected: Qais Abd al-Karim and Bassam as-Salhi. Its best vote was in the Bethlehem Governorate, and its next best was in the Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate.
The alliance was dissolved in early 2007.
