Coalition! is a liberal and centrist British political party. It was founded in September 2020, notably by four former Conservative Party leaders (three of which, namely Leafy_Emerald, Model-Mili and Yukub, are former Prime Ministers).

Coalition! was originally the largest political party in the House of Lords, having the most seats in the upper house before the February 2021 general election - in which it won 10 seats in the House of Commons. Over the course of the 15th Parliament, the party accumulated an additional 10 seats, giving it 20 MPs and making it the 3rd largest party.

In the July 2021 General Election, Coalition! won 15% of the national vote and 21 seats, confirming it as the United Kingdom’s 3rd party. It’s founder and inaugural leader, Brookheimer, stood down in September 2021 - precisely one year after the party’s founding - to be replaced by former Conservative cabinet minister and deputy leader TomBarnaby.
