The Union of Centrists (Greek: Ένωση Κεντρώων, Enosi Kentroon) is a political party in Greece without parliamentary representation. The leader and founder of the party is Vassilis Leventis. The political ideology of the party is Centrism and Venizelism.
The party was founded by Vassilis Leventis in 1992 under the title "Union of Centrists and Ecologists" (Greek: Ένωση Κεντρώων και Οικολόγων). The name was changed shortly after. The Union of Centrists claims to be the ideological continuation of the old party Center Union. The party strives to become "the political continuance of the centrist expression in Greece". Leventis aimed to become part of the Venizelist legacy of some great politicians of the past, such as Eleftherios Venizelos and George Papandreou (senior). However, the party's total influence has been marginal, with 1.79% of the total vote (in the Greek legislative election, 2015) being its highest achievement ever.
