Origin: From coalition, from alo.
the act of coalescing; union into a body or mass, as of separate bodies or parts; as, a coalition of atoms
a combination, for temporary purposes, of persons, parties, or states, having different interests
A coalition is a pact or treaty among individuals or groups, during which they cooperate in joint action, each in their own self-interest, joining forces together for a common cause. This alliance may be temporary or a matter of convenience. A coalition thus differs from a more formal covenant. Possibly described as a joining of 'factions', usually those with overlapping interests rather than opposing.
