Chile Vamos (In spanish for "Let's go Chile") is a Chilean political coalition of four centre-right and right-wing parties. The coalition was created on 29 January 2015 by the general secretaries of the Independent Democrat Union, National Renewal, Democratic Independent Regionalist Party and Political Evolution. However, in late 2019, Independent Democrat Union froze their membership with the coalition because of major disagreements with some policies of their fellow parties.
On August 2, 2014, during the National Council of National Renewal in Santiago, the party chairman, Cristián Monckeberg, called his group together with the UDI and then political movement Evópoli to refound the Alliance under the name Coalition for Freedom. Negotiations were also held with the Independent Regionalist Party so that it would join the coalition, which concluded in December 2014 with the creation of a new coalition agreed to contest the municipal elections of 2016, and the presidential, parliamentary and regional councilors elections of 2017.
The new coalition was made official on January 29, 2015, and the process of finding a name for the new referent began.
In August 2015, the four member parties agreed to submit two lists for the election of councilors in 2016: one consisting of RN and UDI, and the other composed of the PRI and Evópoli. The same month, the name "Levantemos" (Let's get up) emerged as the name that generated greater consensus within the coalition as its mark. However, the name generated a controversy with the NGO Desafío Levantemos Chile, which expressed its rejection by the similarity of the name and logo. Since the opposition bloc argued that the name of the coalition is not yet formalized, and that "Levantemos" is only one of the options to consider.
The name "Chile Vamos" was decided on 4 October 2015.
