The Democratic Union of Cameroon also known as National Union for Democracy and Progress (French: Union Démocratique du Cameroun and Union Nationale pour la Démocratie et le Progrès) is a political party in Cameroon. It was founded by Adamou Ndam Njoya, a former minister of National Education under President Ahidjo. At the last legislative elections, 30 June and 15 September 2002, the Party won 5 seats in the Noun Division out of 180 seats nationwide . During the Presidential Elections of October 11, 2004, Adamou Ndam Njoya and John Fru Ndi failed to agree on the designation of an all-opposition single candidate. As a result Ndam Njoya represented a Coalition of Political Parties, clocked third in the final ballot count and scored 4.47% (168,318 votes).
As of the 2004 elections, the party holds five of the 180 seats in the National Assembly of Cameroon.
