Union of Radical Republicans

Union of Radical Republicans

The Union of Radical Republicans ("Union des républicains radicaux", U2R) is a French political party with its origins in the Radical faction of the Republican Pole, an organisation rallying together supporters of Jean-Pierre Chevènement's candidacy for the 2002 presidential election. It included members of the Radical Party of the Left (PRG) as well as "Valoisien" Radicals, including Emile Zuccarelli, a former president of the PRG, and Gérard Benhamou, a former MEP for the Union for French Democracy.

The U2R has since distanced itself from Chevènement's Citizen and Republican Movement (MRC), and supported François Bayrou's candidacy for the April 2007 presidential election. However it later distanced itself from Bayrou and joined The Progressives.
