Peru Wins (Spanish: Gana Perú) was a leftist electoral alliance in Peru formed for the 2011 general election. It was dominated by the Peruvian Nationalist Party and led by successful presidential candidate Ollanta Humala.
- Peruvian Nationalist Party (Partido Nacionalista Peruano, PNP), left-wing nationalist and populist with ties to "Etnocacerism", loyal to Humala
- Socialist Party (Partido Socialista, PS), democratic socialist, in the tradition of José Carlos Mariátegui
- Peruvian Communist Party (Partido Comunista Peruano, PCP)
- Revolutionary Socialist Party (Partido Socialista Revolucionario, PSR), founded by left-wing military officers
- Political Movement Socialist Voice (Movimiento Político Voz Socialista, MPVS)
In the 2006 election, the Nationalist Party could not register. That is why they formed an alliance with the moderate Union for Peru (UPP), presenting PNP-leader Humala as UPP's candidate. The alliance split a short time after the elections and the Nationalists sat on their own bench in Congress. PCP and PSR were parts of the Broad Left Front.
In the congressional election on April 10, the alliance won 25.27% of the popular vote and 47 of 130 seats, making them the strongest force. In the elections for the five Peruvian members of the Andean Parliament, they won 27.02% and two representatives: Hilaria Supa and Alberto Adrianzén.
Presidential candidate Olanta Humala won 31.7% of the votes. As the first-placed he could qualify for the run-off election. Eventually, he won the second round against right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori with 51.5% of the votes.
After his inauguration on 28 July 2011, Humala appointed a cabinet mainly consisting of moderate and established experts. This cleared up the fears that Peru could radically shift to the left.
All 47 congressmen elected on the party's lists joined the Nationalist/Peru Wins parliamentary group.
At the end of the legislative period, the alliance was shattered. Four years after the election, nearly a third of the lawmakers elected on Peru Wins slates had deserted its benches. In October 2015, even Vice President Marisol Espinoza left the parliamentary group. In the 2016 national election, the PNP does not run at all, while the PCP and PS have joined the Broad Front.
