The Unconditional Spanish Party (Spanish: Partido Incondicional Español) was a loyalist conservative political party in Puerto Rico.[1] It was founded on November 1870 as the Liberal-Conservative Party but in 1873 it changed its name to Unconditional Spanish Party.[2] The party favored traditionalist assimilation into the political party system of Spain. It purchased the newspaper Boletín Mercantil to serve as the party's official organ for disseminating its conservative views.[3] Most of its members belonged to the Puerto Rican Volunteers Corps.
