National Salvation (Spanish: Salvación Nacional) is a right-wing populist and nationalist political party in Carloso. It was formed in 2010 by former members of the Conservative Party as part of the Blue Revolution, mainly in reaction to plans to hold a referendum on the legalisation of abortion and various other social reforms instigated by the Conservative–Democratic coalition government at the time. After the collapse of Conservative support in the general election, National Salvation picked up a huge chunk of the voter base and secured a near-majority in Parliament, going into coalition with a group of rural independents to form a government in 2011. In 2015 it secured an outright parliamentary majority. At present, it is the largest party in the country in terms of both membership and voter share. Many political commentators have labelled it as being far-right and, since taking power, it has become increasingly more hard-line on various issues. National Salvation has been described as being a neo-reactionary, protectionist, nationalist and anti-communist party. The party also opposes immigration, neo-liberalism and progressivism. Since its foundation, it has been led by Cárlos Tobón.
