Syriac Union Party (Syriac: ܓܒܐ ܕܚܘܝܕܐ ܣܘܪܝܝܐ ܒܠܒܢܢ‎, Arabic: حزب الاتحاد السرياني‎) abbreviated as SUL is a Lebanese Assyrian/Syriac[1][2][3] political party established on 29 March 2005. It expresses points of view of the Assyrian/Syriac minority community in Lebanon without any confessional differences between Syriac Orthodox or Syriac Catholic and is vocal in asking for independent seats for the Assyrians/Syriacs in the Lebanese Parliament, rather than confining them to the "minorities seat" in Beirut as is now the case.[4]

The Syriac Union Party is headed by Ibrahim Murad, and is considered[by whom?] very close with the opposition of the 14 March alliance.[citation needed]
