Movimiento Unión Soberanista (MUS) (English: Sovereign Union Movement) is a Puerto Rican political party. The party was founded in October 2010 in the city of Caguas, Puerto Rico.


On March 20, 2012, the Puerto Rico State Commission on Elections (CEE) certified the MUS as a registered party after obtaining the 60,000 endorsements required by Puerto Rican Electoral law.[1]

Election results[edit]

The MUS is currently a small third party. Its candidate for Governor of Puerto Rico, lawyer Arturo Hernández, came in fifth place in the 2012 elections with 0.56% of the vote; María de Lourdes Guzmán, the MUS's candidate for Resident Commissioner, also finished fifth with 0.62% of the vote.[2] The MUS failed to win any seats in the Puerto Rican Senate or House.
