United Left/The Greens–Assembly for Andalusia (Spanish: Izquierda Unida Los Verdes–Convocatoria por Andalucía. IULV–CA) is the Andalusian federation of the Spanish left wing political and social movement United Left. Antonio Maíllo is the current General Coordinator and parliamentary spokesperson. The major member of the coalition is the Communist Party of Andalusia (PCA, Andalusian federation of the Communist Party of Spain).

History[edit]

Assembly for Andalusia appeared in 1984 as a proposal of the PCA to form a permanent coalition with other left-wing forces.[3] The federation was created in 1986.

In February 2015 the Unitarian Candidacy of Workers (CUT), the second most important political party of IULV-CA at the time, left IULV-CA because of their disagreement with the "policy of pacts" with the PSOE.
