The Union pour un mouvement populaire, also referred to as the Union for a Popular Movement or the UMP, was a centre-right political party in the Vannoisian Empire. It espoused the philosophies of conservatism, which traces its roots to classical liberalism with an emphasis on its economically liberal policies in supporting free markets, limited government, and laissez-faire economics, while supporting socially conservative and centrist policies. A significant portion of the UMP base is made up of fiscal conservatives and other free market, pro-capitalism factions.

As of 2017 it was the largest party in the National Assembly as well as the Senate, and was last in government as led by Jean-Christophe, Duke of Périnesse-Toucourt.

The Party was founded in 1901 following the reforms of Louis XX in favor of a Prime Ministerial position. It was founded in Saint-Nazaire by the Lord Jean-Joël Coelho, 65th Duke of Lesseps and formed around Lesseps, who was appointed Prime Minister by the Emperor on 23rd March 1902, cementing the party's importance in Vannoisian politics.

It dissolved on 15 October, 2018, by vote of its leading council.
