HistoryEdit

After being founded in 1998 by people who left PP and Asturianists, URAS contested the Asturian parliamentary election, 1999 achieving only three seats in the General Junta.[1]

For the 2007 election, URAS took part in a coalition with Partíu Asturianista called Asturianist Union. Sergio Marqués left the presidency of the party after the election, being replaced by Javier López Alonso.
