The National Congress of the Canaries ("Spanish: Congreso Nacional de Canarias; CNC) is a separatist "political party in the "Canary Islands, "Spain.

It supports "independence for the Canary Islands. The CNC was founded in 1986 by "Antonio Cubillo, former general secretary of "MPAIAC, after Cubillo returned from "Algiers, where he lived.[1]

The CNC achieved representation in a municipal council of the Canary Islands only once, in the 1987 elections. It won 819 votes (6.47%) in the municipality of "Arrecife ("Lanzarote) and won one seat. In 1991, the CNC made a coalition with "FREPIC-AWAÑAK under the name "Coalición Canarias por la Independencia". However, the CNC obtained less votes than when it had gone to the elections on its own. Presently it doesn't take part in the electoral process of the Canary Islands and it shows few signs of political activity.

The CNC's symbol consists of "Berber letter "Z",[2] reflecting Antonio Cubillo's policy of ""reverting to Berber roots." However, as the polls show, few Canarians support the history of violent actions of Antonio Cubillo's movement.[3]

The youth wing of the National Congress of the Canaries became the group that is today known as "Azarug. In 1992 Azarug split from the CNC party and initiated its own course. Finally in January 2009 the National Congress of the Canaries formed a new youth section under the name Juventudes del Congreso Nacional de Canarias (JCNC).[4]
