The Real Politics Union (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".

Ideology

The Real Politics Union's program includes:

Popular support and funding

The UPR consistently enjoys the support of approximately 1-2% of voters in general elections, and therefore does not receive public funding under Polish electoral law. As a consequence it has faced prolonged financial difficulties since its inception. In 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 (the party had the support of only 1.57% of voters).

In the most recent election, UPR's 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 garnering 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.

Leadership

Party symbol

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).
