Popular Alliance (Spanish: Alianza Popular) is a political coalition of two of the oldest and historically recognized political parties in Peru, the Peruvian Aprista Party (APRA), led by former President Alan García, and the Christian People's Party (PPC), led by Lourdes Flores. The alliance was made by mutual agreement by both leaders with the objective of leading Alan García for a third non-consecutive presidential term in the 2016 presidential election. The third member of the coalition is the minor political party Go Peru, led by the current Mayor of Callao Juan Sotomayor.

The presidential ticket is made up of Alan García for President, Lourdes Flores for 1st Vice President, and David Salazar Morote (former Governor of the Apurímac Region) for 2nd Vice President.

The coalition was dissolved after its poor results on the general election.[1]
