The Alliance for the Progress of Peru (Spanish: Alianza para el Progreso del Perú) was an electoral alliance in Peru formed for the 2016 general election, dominated by the eponymous party Alliance for Progress and led by former Governor of La Libertad César Acuña Peralta.

Constituent parties[edit]

In the 2011 general election, the Alliance for Progress and National Restoration was part of the Alliance for the Great Change (Alianza por el Gran Cambio) while We Are Peru was part of the Possible Peru Alliance (Alianza Perú Posible).

In the congressional election on April 10, the alliance won 9.2% of the popular vote and 9 out of 130 seats, all going to the Alliance for Progress.

Presidential candidate César Acuña was barred from the election on 9 March 2016, by a decision of the Electoral Jury for allegedly vote buying in a campaign trail.
