!important seems to work OK as part of the firmware's default override CSS files for epub and kepub. So, if you're using the kobopatch system, you might be able to do it with a customised patch. For example, you could try customising the patch called 'Un-Force user text-align in div,p tags in KePubs' if you wanted to force alignment in all kepubs.

The default kepub override CSS is:
Code:
div, p { text-align: %1 !important; }
Changing that to:
Code:
div, p {text-align: left !important;}
or some other variation of your choice. (Note: You must keep the before/after string lengths the same.)

However, be aware that this would stop the alignment buttons in the Kobo's [Aa] menu working for kepubs. Only experimenting will tell you whether it actually does what you want.
