The Popular Assembly (Spanish: Asamblea Popular) is a socialist electoral coalition in Uruguay.


The party was founded in April 2006, as a more left-wing alternative to the March 26 Movement.[2]

The party's best known members include former Senator Helios Sarthou, and political activist Raúl Rodríguez. The group stood Rodriguez in the 2009 presidential election. He took 0.67% of the vote, while the party took 0.66% in the parliamentary elections and did not win any seats.[3]

Popular Assembly will take part in the 2014 Uruguayan general elections under the denomination Popular Unity.
