United Regions of Serbia


The United Regions of Serbia (Serbian: Уједињени региони Србије, УPC / Ujedinjeni regioni Srbije, URS) is a regionalist[1] and liberal-conservative[1] political party in Serbia. Originally founded on 16 May 2010 as a political coalition, it became a unified political party on 21 April 2013.[2][3] The URS advocates decentralization and is pro-business.[4][5]

The URS received 5.51% of the popular vote in the 2012 parliamentary election. Following the election, the URS formed a coalition government together with the Serbian Progressive Party and Socialist Party of Serbia.

The URS is an associate member of the European People's Party.[6]
