(Spain) I don't need/want the translation of the name, but instead, of what kind of group it is. A labor union? A political party? (I suspect the latter.) Thanks.

two-party coalition


Explanation:
it is in fact a long-standing coalition of two very similar parties, both Catalan nationalist and both conservative/christian democrats, but they have separate party organs etc.They have been together for so long and diffrences between them are so slight that in fact everyone thinks of them as a single political party.
