A New Era (Spanish: Un Nuevo Tiempo, UNT) is a centre-left political party in Venezuela. It got 11% of the vote in the 2008 gubernatorial elections. The party arose in Zulia State, Venezuela's most populous, and remains far stronger in its home region than elsewhere in the country, providing the state governor since 2000 (currently Pablo Pérez Álvarez, previously Manuel Rosales) and the mayor of its largest city, Maracaibo (since 2010, currently, Eveling Trejo de Rosales).
12 candidates of Un Nuevo Tiempo or supported by Un Nuevo Tiempo were elected deputies to the National Assembly out of 15 in the September 2010 legislative elections. Along with some other opposition parties, Un Nuevo Tiempo boycotted the December 2005 legislative elections. The party's previous leader was Manuel Rosales, Governor of Zulia (2000 - 2008). He was also its candidate for the 2006 presidential election, attracting 37% of the national vote.
