United Progressive Party (UPP)

The United Progressive Party is a political party in Antigua and Barbuda. It is led by Baldwin Spencer, the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, and has the majority of seats in the Antiguan House of Representatives.

The United Progressive Party was formed in 1992 through a merger of three parties, namely the Antigua Caribbean Liberation Movement, the Progressive Labour Movement and the United National Democratic Party. Each party was in opposition to the Antigua Labour Party government. Baldwin Spencer was chosen to lead the new party.

The UPP's platform is one of opposition to the dynastic history of Antiguan politics under the Bird leadership and it emphasizes fiscal restraint and private sector growth.  The UPP came to power for the first time under its leader, Baldwin Spencer, in 2004, when it gained 55.3% of the popular vote.
