Political culture

El Salvador has a multi-party system. Two political parties, the Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA) and the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN), have tended to dominate elections.[citation needed] ARENA candidates won four consecutive presidential elections until the election of Mauricio Funes of the FMLN in March 2009.[citation needed]

Geographically, the departments of the Central region, especially the capital and the coastal regions, known as departamentos rojos, or red departments, are relatively Leftist.[citation needed] The departamentos azules, or blue departments in the east, western and highland regions are relatively conservative.[citation needed]
