The Alliance for the Great Change—PPK (Spanish: Alianza por el Gran Cambio – PPK) was an electoral alliance in Peru formed for the general election, 2011 to promote the presidential candidacy of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski ("PPK").

Constituent Parties[edit]

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski himself was a non-partisan.

In the 2006 election, the Christian democrats had led the alliance National Unity, the Humanists had been part of the Decentralization Coalition, the Alliance for Progress had participated separately. RN had formed a parliamentary alliance with the Center Front after the elections.

2011 election[edit]

In the congressional election on April 10, the alliance won 14.42% of the popular vote and 12 of 130 seats, making them the fourth largest group in parliament. In the elections for the five Peruvian members of the Andean Parliament, they won 13.94%.

Kuczynski's running mates were Máximo San Román, former Vice president under Alberto Fujimori who left the Fujimorist party Cambio 90 and was then considered close to National Restoration for First Deputy, and Marisol Pérez Tello (PPC) for Second Deputy.

"PPK", after a very personalist campaign, won 18.51% of the presidential votes, placing him third, but not enough to qualify for the second round.

For the runoff Kuczynski, San Román and Lay endorsed right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori,[1] while dissenting humanist Simon supported left-winger Ollanta Humala.[2]

In campaign, the alliance used the colors shocking pink, light blue and yellow.


In August 2013 several parliamentarians left the alliance's benches in parliament, leaving only seven members. The parliamentary group was then renamed to "PPC–APP" (Christian People's Party and Alliance for Progress).[3]

For the 2016 general election, the alliance was not revived. Instead, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski launched the Peruanos Por el Kambio ("Peruvians for Change") movement; the PPC joined the centre-left APRA party in the "Popular Alliance" led by ex-president Alan García; the APP leads an alliance with National Restoration and We Are Peru, nominating its party leader César Acuña as presidential candidate (who was disqualified before the election took place); the Humanist Party runs on its own, fielding party leader Yehude Simon.
