The National Independent Union (French: Union Nationale Indépendant) was a political party in Luxembourg.

History

The National Independent Union was formed as a breakaway from the Party of the Right, and was led by Hubert Loutsch and Jean-Pierre Kohner.[1] In the 1925 elections it received 7.3% of the vote, winning two seats.

The party contested the 1928 elections as the "Independent Group",[1] retaining the one seat it had up for election. It then ran as the "Independent Party" in the 1931 elections,[1] again retaining its one-seat up for election. In the 1934 elections it ran under the name "Independents",[1] losing its seat in the south of the country.

After 1934, the party did not contest any further elections.[2]
