The Coalition (Spanish: Coalición) was an electoral alliance in Puerto Rico.

The Coalition was formed in 1924, composed of the Republican Party (later the Republican Union) and the Socialist Party. It was generally in favor of statehood. Some critics thought it represented the interests of United States sugar corporations.[citation needed] It held a majority in the island's legislature from 1932 to 1940.
