The Carlosian World Assembly membership referendum was a non-binding plebiscite in Carloso that was held on 11 November 2011. It was initiated by the National Salvation government lead by President Cárlos Tobón, with the intent to give the Executive Council a mandate to withdraw unilaterally from the World Assembly (WA). One of National Salvation's promises during the bloody campaign of the 2010 general election was to hold a vote on Carloso's continued membership of the WA, which it had joined in 2000. With a campaign buoyed primarily by public concerns that World Assembly resolutions were running increasingly contrary to Carlosian law, the plebiscite returned a 60/40 result for leaving the WA. A week later, Carloso formally cut all diplomatic ties with the WA and resigned from the organisation.
