The Movement for Democratic Change Alliance (MDC Alliance) was an electoral bloc formed between seven political parties in Zimbabwe on 6 August 2017.
Three of the member parties were splinters from the original Movement for Democratic Change and each other. The bloc was formed to contest the 2018 election. The MDC Alliance was led by Nelson Chamisa who replaced Morgan Tsvangirai as President of the MDC-T after Tsvangirai died on the 14 February 2018 after a long fight against colon cancer. On 30 July 2018, the alliance went head to head with the Emmerson Mnangagwa-led Zanu PF in Zimbabwe's historic elections. The alliance was narrowly edged by Zanu PF in the presidential election, with Mnangagwa receiving 50.8% of the vote to MDC Alliance's Nelson Chamisa's 44.3%. The election results have received international attention as possible fraud.
