The SNK Union of Independents (Czech official title: SNK sdružení nezávislých), or SNK (from the earlier title Sdružení nezávislých kandidátů - Association of Independent Candidates), was a small (rather conservative and liberal) political party (registered as a movement - hnutí by the Czech legislative) in Czech Republic, led since May 2007 by Helmut Dohnálek.
It was founded in 2000 in order to help various non-party affiliated town mayors to take part in regional assembly elections. Later it won two seats in the Senate elections in 2002.
In February 2006 the non-parliamentary parties SNK and "European Democrats (ED)" merged. The unified party, led by former Foreign Minister Josef Zieleniec, is called "SNK European Democrats (SNK ED)". The pro-European and liberal-conservative SNK-ED is represented by three deputies in the European Parliament.
- 2002 Chamber of Deputies: 2,78% - no seat
- 2002 Senate: SNK - 2 seats
- 2004 Senate: SNK - 1 seat
- 2004 European Parliament: in coalition with ED - 11,02% - 3 seats
