History


The UER contested the 1990 general elections, and despite receiving only 0.04% of the vote,[1] it won a single seat in the Chamber of Deputies under the electoral law that allows for political parties representing ethnic minority groups to be exempt from the electoral threshold. It has won a seat in every election since.
