The Group Union for Europe (UFE) was a conservative political group with seats in the European Parliament between 1995 and 1999. The group was formed during the 4th European Parliament term in July 1995 from a merger of the European Democratic Alliance and Forza Europa parliamentary groups,[2][3] becoming the third largest group by number of MEPs.[4] The group was succeeded in the 5th European Parliament by the Union for Europe of the Nations (UEN),[5] while key UFE member parties Forza Italia and Rally for the Republic instead joined the European People's Party.[2]
