The Christian Conservative Social Union (Lithuanian: Krikščionių konservatorių socialinė sąjunga, KKSS) was a centre-right, Christian-conservative political party in Lithuania.

History[edit]

The party was established as the Union of Moderate Conservatives (Nuosaikiųjų konservatorių sąjunga) in 2000 as a breakaway from the Homeland Union.[1] Initially led by former Prime Minister Gediminas Vagnorius, it contested the 2000 elections, receiving 2% of the vote and winning a single seat.

By the 2004 elections the party had been renamed the "Christian Conservative Social Union". It received again 2.0% of the vote, but lost its single seat in the Seimas.

On 23 January 2010 it merged into the Christian Party.
