The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) was a political alliance in Zambia formed to contest the 2006 general elections.

History

The UDA was formed on 1 March 2006 by the United Party for National Development (UPND), the United National Independence Party (UNIP) and the Forum for Democracy and Development,[1] which between them had won 74 of the 150 elected seats in the National Assembly in the 2001 elections. Anderson Mazoka, who had finished as runner-up in the presidential elections, was the alliance's leader until his death in May 2006. He was succeeded by Hakainde Hichilema,[2] also of the UPND.

In the 2006 elections Hichilema finished third out of the five presidential candidates with 25% of the vote. In the National Assembly elections the alliance received 23% of the vote, winning 26 seats.

The three parties contested the 2011 elections separately.
