Unitarian Left (Gauche unitaire, GU) is a political party in France which used to be a faction (under the name Unir or Unite) within the new far-left New Anticapitalist Party (NPA). The party is led by Christian Picquet, a former member of the Revolutionary Communist League.

The creation of the party was announced on March 8, 2009 at the founding congress of the Left Front electoral coalition ahead of the 2009 European elections. Picquet, who had been a member of a opposition faction within the NPA (3.7% at the founding congress of the NPA), disagreed with the majority's refusal to ally with the Communist-led Left Front for the European elections.

As a result, Picquet's small movement has integrated the Left Front and Picquet will be the third candidate on the coalition's list in the Île-de-France constituency.

Ideologically, the party seeks to unite all democratic socialists opposed to capitalism and neo-liberalism under a common front.
