The Republican Union (Spanish: Unión Republicana) was a pro-statehood political party in Puerto Rico, that also contemplated total autonomy in the case that entry into the American Union was denied.[1]

Founding[edit]

The Republican Union was founded in 1932 from the merging of the Partido Republicano Puro (Pure Republican Party) and the conservative wing of the Alianza. Together with the Socialist Party, it was part of an electoral alliance known as Coalición.
