The electoral coalition called Encuentro Progresista was founded
in 1994 by the Frente Amplio and other minor left
parties, e.g. the Democratic Christian Party, and
still exists currently.

Encuentro Progresista is a center-left alliance, led by Tabaré
Vázquez, which has just won the first round of the presidential elections
in Uruguay (second round scheduled on 28 November). The alliance groups the
socialists, the communists, former Tupamaro
guerilleros and former deceived members of the two main dominant
parties of center-right,
Colorado and Blanco.
