Progresistas (Spanish: Progressives) was a center-left[2] political coalition in Argentina, led by Margarita Stolbizer.[3] It was composed of Generation for a National Encounter, the Freemen of the South Movement, the Socialist Party and the Authentic Socialist Party.[4]

Margarita Stolbizer was candidate for the presidency of Argentina in the 2015 Argentine general election for the Progresistas ticket. She finished fifth with 2.51% of the vote, not enough to pass the threshold for the run-off.[5] In that election, the coalition's list got only one deputy elected to the Chamber of Deputies (Victoria Donda).

In the 2017 legislative election, the coalition's member parties formed different electoral alliances, and in the resulting composition of the National Congress, the Progresistas group was disbanded.


Progresistas was composed of:[6]

Party Leader Main ideology Position
Socialist Party Antonio Bonfatti Social Democracy Centre-left to Left-wing
Authentic Socialist Party Mario Mazzitelli Democratic Socialism Left-wing
Freemen of the South Movement Humberto Tumini Left-wing Nationalism Centre-left to Left-wing
Generation for a National Encounter Margarita Stolbizer Social Democracy Centre-left
