The National Political Union (Greek Εθνική Πολιτική Ένωσις), was a centrist, Venizelist coalition formed in Greece to take part in its first post-World War II elections.

The coalition was made up of the Venizelist Liberals of Sophocles Venizelos, the Democratic Socialist Party of Georgios Papandreou, the National Unionist Party of Panagiotis Kanellopoulos and various allied political forces. They polled 19.28% of the vote and elected 68 MPs, losing to the right-wing United Alignment of Nationalists.
