Democratic Unionist Party: Political unionist party of Northern Ireland
The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) is a unionist political party in Northern Ireland favouring British identity.

Now led by Arlene Foster, it is equal with Sinn Féin in having the most seats in the Northern Ireland Assembly, and it is the fifth-largest party in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom.
