Civic and Social Agreement
The Civic and Social Agreement is an active congressional alliance in Argentina, integrated by the Radical Civic Union (UCR), the Civic Coalition (CC) and the Socialist Party (PS), which acted as an umbrella national electoral alliance at the last 2009 Argentine legislative elections.
During the 2008 conflicts between the Argentine Government and the agriculture sector, most factions of the parties that would later ally themselves into the ACyS took a strong stance against the National Government agricultural policy. Previously, at the 2007 presidential elections, the Civic Coalition and the Socialist Party went on a joint presidential ticket, and - since 2005 - both parties plus the Radical Civic Union make up the Progressive, Civic and Social Front alliance in Santa Fe Province that won the provincial Governorship on 2 September 2007 for socialist Hermes Binner.
