Social and Civic Agreement

The Social and Civic Agreement (Spanish: Acuerdo Cívico y Social, ACyS) is an active congressional alliance in Argentina, integrated by the Radical Civic Union (UCR) and the Socialist Party (PS), which acted as an umbrella national electoral alliance at the last 2009 Argentine legislative elections.[1] The Civic Coalition, which was a founder member of the Social and Civic Agreement, left the alliance on 12 August 2010.[2]


During the 2008 conflicts between the Argentine Government and the agricultural sector, most factions of the parties that would later ally themselves into the ACyS took a strong stance against the National Government's agricultural policy. Previously, at the 2007 presidential elections, the Civic Coalition and the Socialist Party ran 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.
