The National Solidarity Alliance (Spanish: Alianza Solidaridad Nacional) is an electoral alliance in Peru formed for the general election, 2011, dominated by the eponymous Party National Solidarity and led by presidential candidate Luis Castañeda.
- National Solidarity (Partido Solidaridad Nacional, PSN), liberal conservative, Castañeda's personalist vehicle
- Union for Peru (Unión por el Perú, UPP), the centrist, social liberal core of the party, after Ollanta Humala's Nationalists left the alliance
- Cambio 90, the splinter of the former main force of Fujimorism that has not followed Keiko Fujimori to the new Force 2011
- Always Together (Siempre Unidos)
- Everyone For Peru (Todos por el Perú)
In the 2006 election, National Solidarity Party (PSN) was part of the alliance National Unity, led by the Christian democrats, the UPP formed an alliance with the Peruvian Nationalist Party to promote their leader's candidacy, Cambio 90 participated in the pro-Fujimori Alliance for the Future.
In the congressional election on April 10, the alliance won 10.22% of the popular vote and 9 of 130 seats, placing them in the fifth position. In the elections for the five Peruvian members of the Andean Parliament, they won 9.41% but no representative.
Presidential candidate Luis Castañeda, initially considered a favourite, won 9.83% of the votes placing him fifth and not qualifying him for the run-off.
For the second round Castañeda suggested to vote for Force 2011 candidate Keiko Fujimori.
Eight of the nine representatives elected on the alliance's lists formed the National Solidarity parliamentary group. Renzo Reggiardo of Cambio 90 instead joined the small APRA-led Parliamentary Coordination bloc.
