Template:Politics of Poland The Real Politics Union (Polish: Unia Polityki Realnej, UPR) is a free market-emphasizing conservative political party in Poland. It is composed of conservatives, libertarians and monarchists. The party slogan is: "Freedom, Property, Justice".

IdeologyEdit

The party's goals are to create a minimal state, restricted to basic functions such as:

  • Assuring citizen's safety.
  • Assuring required infrastructure to effective government operation.
  • Primary and secondary education financed by the government.
  • Minimum pension for retired people.
  • Funding healthcare for seriously ill and bedridden people.

Popular support and fundingEdit

The UPR consistently has the support of 1–2% of voters in general elections, too low to receive public funding under Polish electoral law. As a consequence, it has faced prolonged financial difficulties since its inception. In the 1991 legislative election, the party won 3 seats.

UPR's candidates commenced their political campaign from the liberal-conservative organisation Janusz Korwin-Mikke's Platform ("Platforma Janusza Korwin-Mikke"). The PJKM did not manage to cross the required 5% threshold in the 2005 parliamentary elections (it got only 1.57%).

In the most recent election, the UPR candidates campaigned in cooperation with the League of Polish Families but did not enter into a formal coalition.

The list on which both the UPR and the League appeared saw the UPR get 1.5% votes. This was insufficient to get any of their candidates into the lower house ("Sejm") and therefore the UPR remains unable to obtain public funding.

LeadershipEdit

Party symbolEdit

A special colour variation of St George's Cross is used here as a traditional symbol of a struggle for principles. The colours of the flag represent: a struggle for allegiance (blue), virtue (white) and freedom (black).
