Liliana Teresita Negre de Alonso (born 18 May 1954, San Luis) is an Argentine Justicialist Party (PJ) politician. She sits in the Argentine Senate representing San Luis Province for right-wing Federal Peronism party.

Negre graduated with a law degree at the University of Buenos Aires in 1976 and with a Master in Business Law in 1993 at the Austral University. She had a career in the judicial system and at the state prosecutor's office of San Luis, and is a prolific writer. She was candidate for national deputy in 1999.

Negre de Alonso was appointed to the Senate in March 2001 to complete the term of Alberto Rodríguez Saá and was elected to the Senate later that year, then re-elected in 2005. She is close to her fellow San Luis senator Adolfo Rodríguez Saá, opposing the kirchneristas (followers of Néstor Kirchner) of the Front for Victory. They have formed an alliance with other Peronists from the provinces (Peronismo Federal) opposed to the centralization and authoritarian style of the Kirchners and represents them as the second vice-president of the Senate since February 2008.

Negre de Alonso is a devout Roman Catholic follower of Opus Dei, and has opposed liberalising the law on contraception and abortion.[1] She heads the Global Action Network of Legislators and Governors for Life and the Family, bringing together several 'pro-life' legislators in Europe and Latin America. She is also against gay marriage.
