DescriptionSocial Democratic and Farmer Alternative (in Spanish: Alternativa Socialdemócrata y Campesina) is a Mexican political party of recent formation.

The party started as an alliance of two political leaders: Ignacio Irys and Patricia Mercado. However, most of its members come from four extinct parties: the Social Democracy Party led by Gilberto Rincón Gallardo(which lost its registration as an officially recognized party by barely 20,000 votes in the 2000 election), México Posible led by Patricia Mercado, Fuerza Ciudadana and the Partido Campesino y Popular.

According to the documents submitted to the Federal Electoral Institute (IFE), the party has 214,314 members as of July 14, 2005, and it defines itself as a New Left party. Current party president is Alberto Begné Guerra and her vicepresident is Ignacio Irys Salomon.

Former México Posible leader and feminist activist Patricia Mercado is one of the party founders. She is currently her party's presidential candidate for the 2006 elections.
