Road Towards Change (Middle Sabian: Képren Lâdom) was an electoral alliance between the Unity Party and Initiative for Democracy in Sabia and Verona, formed ahead of the September 2014 election. The alliance won nine out of 20 seats of the Chamber of Deputies in the election, and formed the Sixth Government, led by Unity Party leader Bertrand Rivière.
The two member parties found common ground in their anti-Bleuberrist stance (opposing the Left Alliance and their ally party, Convergence and Amity). Rivière was Prime Minister from 2014 to 2015. During his administration, a series of hardline Sabian nationalist policies were adopted (including the degradation of Lycene and Pashqar from official languages to "national" languages).
The alliance was dissolved before the end of the 2nd Chamber of Deputies' term, when Rivière dissolved the legislature unconstitutionally. The Initiative distanced itself from Unity and Rivière, and disbanded shortly after the 2015 election in the aftermath of the Haronos Plan.
