United Christian Party (Hungary)
|Founded||26 January 1937|
|Dissolved||13 October 1944|
|Merger of||KGSZP, KE, NLN|
The party was formed in 1937 by a merger of the Christian Economic and Social Party (KGSZP), the Christian Opposition and the National Legitimist Party (NLN), although members of the Christian Opposition broke away later in the same year to re-establish their party. Some other members left to establish the far-right Christian National Socialist Front (KNSZF).
The 1939 elections saw the new party win only four seats, eleven fewer than the KGSZP and NLN had won in 1935. It finished behind the Christian National Socialist Front in terms of vote share, although the KNSZF won only three seats. Neither party contested another election. After World War II the EKP was succeeded by the Christian Democratic People's Party.
