The Unity and Progress Party (French: Parti de l'Unité et du Progrès, PUP) is a political party in Guinea. It was the ruling party during the long rule of President Lansana Conté.
In the parliamentary election held on 30 June, 2002, the party won 61.57 % of the popular vote and 85 out of 114 seats. Its candidate in the 21 December 2003 presidential election, Lansana Conté, won 95.25% of the vote; this election was, however, generally boycotted by the opposition.[1]
Following Conté's death on December 22, 2008, the military immediately seized power in a coup d'état, ending the rule of the PUP. The party has continued to exist since the coup, although in a severely weakened form. It nominated Aboubacar Somparé, a prominent figure in the Conté regime, as its candidate for the June 2010 presidential election, but he received only about 1% of the vote.
