DescriptionThe Grand Alliance for National Unity (GANA; Spanish: Gran Alianza por la Unidad Nacional) is a political party in El Salvador. The party established itself on 16 January 2010 and was recognized by the Supreme Electoral Court of El Salvador on 19 May of the same year. GANA is a conservative and centre-right party. Nevertheless, it almost always forms a parliamentary coalition with the ruling leftist Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN).

The majority of party members came from the ARENA. Originally the defection from ARENA included 12 deputies in the Legislative Assembly, but this number has grown to 16. GANA ranks third in seats in the assembly with 11, after the FMLN's 31 and the ARENA's remaining 28. There have been accusations of ARENA members being bought or blackmailed by the GANA party in order to secure them in their party. GANA has also been accused of multiple cases of corruption.
