Greek Unity (Greek: Ελληνική Ενότητα, abbreviated as ΕΛ.ΕΝ.) is a minor Greek nationalist political party.

It is led by Vasileios (also Vasilis) Protopapas (Greek: Βασίλης Πρωτόπαπας), one-time president of the Movement for the Release of Army Officers (Greek: Κίνηση Αποφυλακίσεως Αξιωματικών,[1] which campaigns for the release of the 1967-1975 Junta participants from prison, and vice-president of the Panhellenic Association of Combatants and Friends of the National Resistance Organisation 'X' (Greek: Πανελλήνιος Σύνδεσμος Μαχητών και Φίλων της Εθνικής Αντιστασιακής Οργανώσεως «Χ»).[2]

It contested the 2009 European Parliament elections in Greece. The first name on the party list was Nikolaos Dertilis (Greek: Νικόλαος Ντερτιλής), a former army officer convicted of the murder of a student, Michail Myrogiannis,[3] during the Athens Polytechnic uprising.

As Dertilis remains in prison and did not sign his nomination papers, on 24 May 2009 Greece's supreme court rejected his candidacy. Despite this disqualification, his name appeared on the printed ballot papers on polling day.[4]
