History

Base

Ahead of the 2022 parliamentary and presidential elections, several political leaders held a press conference on February 11, 2021, at which the coalition was officially introduced. Among the leaders stand out Gustavo Petro, Gustavo Bolivar, Alexander Lopez, Ayda Avella, Ivan Cepeda, Maria José Pizarro, Francia Marquez. The bloc considers it its mission to present a list with a majority in Congress and a candidate who can run for the presidency of the republic. Among the founders are the Humanist Colombia, the Patriotic Union, the Alternative Democratic Pole and the Alternative Indigenous and Social Movement. Later, with the intention of expanding the coalition, a dialogue was established with various parties, such as the Green Alliance. After the Green Alliance decided to give its activists free rein to support their preferred presidential candidate, several members of the alliance supported the Historical Pact. Other organizations were also integrated into it, such as the Broad Democratic Alliance, MODEP, Civic Force, Congress of the Peoples, Labor Party of Colombia, and the Generals (former FARC party). In addition, as the coalition grew in popularity, it was joined and supported by various politicians in the country.
