Union des électeurs
The Union des électeurs or UE (in English: Union of Electors) was founded in 1939 by Louis Even and Gilberte Côté-Mercier . It was the first créditiste political movement to be active in Quebec, canada.
The Union des électeurs faded away as a political party after the 1949 federal election. In the 1950s, Caouette contested seats in various by-elections against the wishes of Even and Côté-Mercier disapproved. In 1958, Caouette broke with Even and Côté-Mercier and founded the Ralliement des créditistes, which ran candidates in federal elections in the 1950s and 1960s and was, at times, the Quebec branch of the Social Credit Party of Canada. In 1970, the federal Ralliement des créditistes founded a distinct provincial branch, the Ralliement créditiste du Québec.
