The Sicilian People's Movement (Movimento Popolare Siciliano, MPS), formerly Allied for Sicily (ApS), was a regional centrist political party active in Sicily, Italy.

The party was formed in May 2011 by former members of The People of Freedom, the Union of the Centre and the Democratic Party in support of Raffaele Lombardo's regional government. ApS/MPS, which at its foundation counted 6 regional deputies, is a close ally of the Movement for the Autonomies.[1][2][3][4]

In March 2012 the party took the current name.[5][6] Riccardo Savona was elected president of the party.[7]

In the 2012 Sicilian regional election the party formed a joint list with the local section of Future and Freedom in support of the "Sicilianist" bid of Gianfranco Micciché (Great South and Party of Sicilians). The list obtained 4.4% of the vote and no regional deputies, as it did not pass the 5% threshold.[8][9]
