Union Federal Party


Union Federal Party

The Union Federal Party (Afrikaans: Verenigde Federale Party) broke away from the United Party in 1953. It was an Anglo-African party, committed to retaining links with the British Commonwealth and monarchy, and also wished to explore liberalising the non-white franchise.
