The generalization of the Lotka-Volterra model (GLVM), to the N agents case is used in this contribution. The model is applied to model party alliances before election processes, as well as to prospect the final horizons of different candidates in Argentinian future elections which will take place on October 2011. The parameters of the model are setting using public polls. Romanian polls are used to validate the ansatzabout the meaning of the parameters considering the available data, as this election results are known.
