Recreate for Growth
Recreate for Growth is a conservative liberal political party of Argentina.
The party was formed in 2002, mostly by market-oriented members of the Radical Civic Union, headed by Ricardo Lopez Murphy.
The Recrear Federal Movement is a national alliance formed in 2003 between Recrear itself and the Federal Movement of various provincial parties - the Salta Renewal Party, the Democratic Progressive Party, the Democratic Party of Mendoza, the Federal Party, the Liberal Party of Corrientes, the Democratic Party of the City of Buenos Aires, the Democratic Liberal Party of Cordoba, the Catamarca Popular Movement, the Provincial Union of Entre Rios, the Party of the Hope of the Province of Buenos Aires, the Independent Citizens of Tucuman and the Federal North of Jujuy. Lopez Murphy as the movement's presidential candidate and Ricardo Gomez Diez of Salta for vice-president in the 2003 elections, ending in third place with 18%.
In 2005 the party formed an alliance with Buenos Aires' party Commitment to Change (Compromiso para el Cambio) led by Mauricio Macri. The alliance has attempted to form a wide-ranging right-wing front, especially with Neuquen's party, the Neuquino People's Movement (Movimiento Popular Neuquino - MPN), for the 2005 parliamentary elections. Recrear and its allies won nine members of the Argentine Chamber of Deputies, with those of some of Recrear's constituent provincial parties. Lopez Murphy subsequently fell out with Jorge Sobisch, leader of the MPN, and formally teamed up with Commitment to Change to form a new centre-right electoral front, Republican Proposal (PRO).
Following the election, Lopez Murphy stood down from the leadership of the Party and in 2008, Congressman Esteban Bullrich was elected to replace him. Bullrich backed the ongoing alliance with Macri and PRO, whilst Lopez Murphy had backed Castor Lopez, calling for the autonomy of the Party. In April 2008, Lopez Murphy resigned from the Party and later set up another new party, Current of Federal Convergence (CCF) which has pursued closer ties with the Civic Coalition.
Recrear has observer status with the Liberal International.
