Progressive Coalition (Sabia and Verona)
|Political position||Centre to Left-wing|
The Progressive Coalition (Sabian: Prögrecıvik Alüak; Pashqar: ناشقابهف تابهک, Nashqäbëf Tabëk) or PA - NT, sometimes simply called the Coalition is a Sabioveronese electoral coalition of centrist, centre-left and left-wing political parties formed in June and July 2013 to represent opponents of both the government of Socialist Napoléon Bleuberrie and the conservative Unity Party. Its current leader and founder is Ann Stefanović, who also leads the Initiative for Democracy, a centrist social liberal party and one of PA's founding members. It is Sabia and Verona's first electoral coalition.
The Coalition is currently composed of three parties: the Initiative for Democracy, the Roots Party and the Pashqari People's Party. In total, the Progressive Coalition has a membership of 34, making it the largest political organisation in Sabia and Verona and the second largest in Juclandia after the United Revolutionary Front of Jucărești.
Alliances and co-operation between political parties in Sabia and Verona had been going on since the creation of third parties during the government of Osez Kóvérsz. The Strawberry Party (XAM) and the Free Suyu Front (FSF) were an example of this, and in May 2013 the FSF and the XAM merged into the Roots Party. On June 2013, the Initiative for Democracy headed by Ann Stefanović initiated talks with Roots, and in June 28, 2013 both parties held a joint congress in which it was decided they would form a coalition, creating the first electoral alliance in Sabia and Verona. On July 2013 the Pashqari People's Party became part of the Coalition. Later that month, the Coalition announced they had elected Stefanović to represent them in the September 2013 general election. PA-NT won the election with 75% of the overall vote, and it became the government coalition in October 1, 2013.
