The North-East Union (Unione Nord-Est) is a Venetist political party active in Veneto.

The party was formed in 1996 by splinters from Liga VenetaLega Nord led by Adriano Bertaso.[1] In the 1996 general election the party won 2.0% of the vote in the region (2.6% for the Senate[2]), having run only in the VeronaPaduaVicenzaRovigo constituency (3.4%).[3] In 1999 Bertaso led the Union into the Liga Veneta Repubblica (LVR) of Fabrizio Comencini, but soon after it left it and re-organized his party, which is currently a minor political force in Veneto.

In the 2004 provincial election the party was revived and won 1.9% of the vote in Verona.[4][5] In 2009 UNE gained 1.8%.[4]

In the 2010 regional election the party chose to support Antonio De Poli (UDC) for President. The UNE logo was used as common symbol of the joint Venetist list formed by UNE, North-East Project (PNE), Liga Veneta Repubblica (LVR) and Venetian Agreement (IV).[6] The list won 1.5% of vote regionally, with peaks of 1.9% and 1.8% in the provinces of Treviso and Belluno, and Mariangelo Foggiato (PNE) was elected to the Council.[7]

In the 2011 provincial election of Treviso the UNE won 2.4% of the vote and the PNE lost all its provincial councillors.[8]
