Contigo, formerly Peruvians for Change (Spanish: Peruanos Por el Kambio, PPK), is a centre-right[2][3] party in Peru. It was registered in October 2014.[4] Its founder is the economist, former Prime Minister Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, President of Peru from 2016 until his resignation in 2018. He may be described as conservative[5] and liberal.[6] The party's campaign colors are pink, sky blue, and yellow, similar to its predecessor Alliance for the Great Change.

The incorrect spelling "Kambio" instead of "Cambio" ("change" in Spanish) is intended to make the party have the same initials as its founder.[7]

In the 2016 Congressional election, the party won 16.5% of the votes and 18 out of 130 seats. Their then-leader Kuczynski was elected president, winning 21.05% in the first and 50.12% in the second round.

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, leader of the faction, resigns.
