The Alliance (L'Alliance) or Republican, Ecologist and Social Alliance[1] (L'Alliance républicaine, écologique et sociale, ARES), often referred as "Confederation of the Centres" (Confederation des Centres), is a centrist, liberal and social-liberal coalition of political parties in France.

In a government reshuffle in November 2010, Jean-Louis Borloo, minister of Ecology, Energy and Sustainable Development and leader of the Radical Party, and Hervé Morin, minister of Defence and leader of New Centre, were excluded by Prime Minister François Fillon. This led many centrists to distance from President Nicolas Sarkozy.[2] On 7 April 2011 Borloo announced the creation of a centrist coalition. On 14–15 May, during a party congress, the Radicals decided to cut their ties with Sarkozy's Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), of which they had been an associate party since 2002.[3][4][5] The coalition was officially launched during a convention on 26 June 2011.[6]
