The Progressive Alliance is a coalition of progressive centrist to centre-left parities focussed around reforming Manchuria's "stagnant, corrupt politics" as well as championing liberalism. In the 2015 the Progressive Alliance won 233 seats in the Supreme National Assembly, making it the second largest voting block after the ruling Manzuxiehui.
The Progressive Alliance for Manchuria is an alliance of three political parties who espouse progressive, liberalism, and reformism that was formed in 2014 in response to the dominance of the Manzuciehui which has been the dominant party in Manchu politics since the 1990s following the dissolution of the Manchu People's Republic and the Communist Party of Manchuria. Since then, the MNA has dominated on most levels in Manchu politics leading to many observers, both Manchu and international, accusing the Manchu bureaucracy and political system of being plagued with stagnation, nepotism, corruption and the creation of a de-facto dominant-party system with many analysts from Anglo-America comparing the Manchu National Association's dominance over Manchu politics to the historic dominance of the Continentalist Party in the United Commonwealth. The alliance was founded by Feng Huiyin, vice president of the New Progressive Party, who sought to create in her own words "a unified front to force the MNA to reform our stagnant political system and create a truly democratic and free political system".
The Progressive Alliance is a largely big tent alliance, but is largely progressive, liberal and reformist. The PAM is highly critical of the current Manchu political establishment accusing it of being concerned with their own self-interests, ideological agendas and for ignoring the needs and concerns of the general public. Progressive Alliance members have compared the current Manchu establishment to the communist regime of Qian Yiu-tong which saw the rise of nepotism, stagnation, corruption, regionalism and factionalism in the country. Many modern analysts have supported such comparisons citing how the major parties, the Manzuxiehui and the Socialist Party are confined to individual provinces and regions.
