United Australia Party

United Australia Party or UAP was an Australian political party that was the political successor to the Nationalist Party of Australia. It was formed in 1932 when Joseph Lyons, a Labor MP, and his supporters crossed the floor to bring down the Scullin Labor Government.

The UAP disappeared in the 1940s and was replaced as the right wing party of Australian politics by the Liberal Party of Australia.
