This article lists political parties in Nicaragua. Historically, Nicaragua had a two-party system, with varying two dominant political parties. However, the 2006 general election could have marked the end of the bipartite scheme, as the anti-Sandinista forces split into two major political alliances: the Nicaraguan Liberal Alliance (ALN) and the Constitutionalist Liberal Party (PLC).
