The Eniaion Party (Greek: Ενιαίον Κόμμα, lit. United Party) was a short-lived moderate right-wing political party in Cyprus.

History[edit]

The party was established by Glafcos Clerides in February 1969 as a split from the Patriotic Front.[1][2]

In the 1970 parliamentary elections the party emerged as the largest in the House of Representatives with 15 seats, despite finishing second in the vote tally.[3]

The party did not contest any further elections,[4] with Clerides going onto establish the Democratic Rally prior to the 1976 elections.[5]
