The Liberal and Centre Union (Lithuanian: Liberalų ir centro sąjunga, LiCS) is a liberal political party in Lithuania. Following the October 2012 elections, the party no longer holds any seats in the Seimas.
It is a member of the Liberal International and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party.
At the legislative elections of 2008 the party gained 8 seats out of its previous 18 and 5.34% of the national vote, but formed a coalition with the Homeland Union, the Liberal Movement, and the National Resurrection Party.
The party agreed to absorb the National Resurrection Party, whose MPs had been sitting in the LiCS parliamentary group, on 22 September 2011.
