The Civic Front is effectively a coalition of members of both the Radical Civic Union (UCR) and the Justicialist Party with some socialists. Most of those under the Civic Front banner are supporters of the Front for Victory of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Néstor Kirchner.

At the legislative elections of 23 October 2005 the party won three of the 127 elected deputies (out of 257). The province's governor, Gerardo Zamora (UCR) was elected on the Civic Front ticket at the same election. In 2007 the Front won all four positions for national deputy in the Province and two out of three Senators.[1]
