Pact for Italy
It was composed by the Italian People's Party and Patto Segni and finished third in the 1994 general election, after the centre-right Pole of Freedoms/Pole of Good Government and the left-wing Alliance of Progressives.
Originally also Lega Nord was to join the alliance, but Umberto Bossi finally decided to join Silvio Berlusconi's Pole of Freedoms. A different decision by Bossi would have probably produced a different political system from that Italy had since 1994.
After the election, the alliance was disbanded. The Italian People's Party suffered a split of those who wanted to join Berlusconi's centre-right (the United Christian Democrats of Rocco Buttiglione) and those who wanted to stick with the left-wing Democratic Party of the Left. Patto Segni become a much minor force and formed a joint list, within the centre-left Olive Tree coalition, with Italian Renewal and the Italian Socialists for 1996 general election
