The New Alliance Party (Spanish: Partido Nueva Alianza, PNA or PANAL) is a political party in Mexico.

Its creation was proposed by the Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación (SNTE, National Union of Education Workers), the largest trade union in Latin America, led by Elba Esther Gordillo, the controversial former general secretary of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).

The New Alliance Party was created on January 30, 2005, three years after the SNTE created the Asociación Ciudadana del Magisterio (ACM, Citizen Association of Teachers), a political group recognized by the Federal Electoral Institute since August 2002. The creation of this party by the SNTE, a group that has traditionally supported the PRI in every election caused accusations of treason for Gordillo.

The party's president is Roberto Campa as its candidate for president in the 2006 general elections. In the 2006 legislative elections the party won nine out of 500 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and one out of 128 Senators. In the 2009 legislative elections the party lost one seat in the Chamber of Deputies, leaving it with eight seats. In the 2012 legislative elections, PANAL won 2 seats in the Senate (an overall loss of 3), and 10 seats in the Chamber of Deputies (an overall gain of 3).[1]

The party logo distinctly resembles that of the now-defunct Canadian Alliance, a conservative party active from 2000 to 2003. The logo was provided by an ad agency, purported to resemble a dove. Despite the discovery of the logo's resemblance to that of the Canadian Alliance (leading one founding member of the party to express feeling "robbed"), it was nonetheless adopted. The party's 2012 presidential candidate, Gabriel Quadri, appeared in a wetsuit at his campaign launch, as did Canadian Alliance leader Stockwell Day. [2]
