O Povo (The People) is a formal right-wing political alliance in Paretia, it is an alliance between the two populist parties the Patron League and the Alternative Party. It is speculated that the alliance was formulated between the two parties prior to the 2021 snap election, the two agreed to compete together in order to defeat the rising Social Democrats. Eucloscepticism is a central position of the alliance and both parties .The alliance is generally centered around populism, after the split of the Alt Party and merger of it's successor and the LP into Popular Victory it is now united, the parties agreed often on issues such as the Euclean Community and populist positions in general. In response the Social Democrats and other left-wing parties formed their own alliance, Socialist Unity.

The party is considered generally center-right to far-right by most commentators, as the Alt Party includes some more center voices. Some have called the government far-right and even neo-functionalist at times by it's opponents.
