Sandinismo is an authoritarian and socialist leftist revolutionary ideology based on the thought of the Nicaraguan revolutionary Augusto César Sandino. It is the ideology of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (in Spanish: Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, FSLN), which is the main political party in Nicaragua and formerly a guerrilla organization.
Augusto César Sandino was a Nicaraguan revolutionary who from 1927 to 1933 was the leader of an armed rebellion against the US occupation of Nicaragua. Despite being assassinated, Sandino became an anti-imperialist icon.
In 1961, Nicaragua was under the dictatorship of the Somoza Family, which was backed by the United States, so, inspired by Sandino's asañas, the socialist politician Carlos Fonseca founded the Sandinista National Liberation Front, a guerrilla organization from socialist court that, after waging a violent revolution, managed to overthrow the Somoza Family and establish a socialist government.
Following this, the Sandinistas clashed with anti-communist insurgent groups called "Contras" in a civil war that lasted until 1990, when the opposition defeated the Sandinistas in pre-presidential elections.
After a long time without being in power, the Sandinistas would win the 2006 presidential elections with Daniel Ortega, who over time would perpetuate himself in power. Currently the Sandinistas control almost the entire national samblea, and have turned Nicaragua into an authoritarian government of the left.
