The United Regions of Serbia (Serbian: Уједињени региони Србије, УPC / Ujedinjeni regioni Srbije, URS) was a regionalist[2] and liberal-conservative[2] political party in Serbia. Originally founded on 16 May 2010 as a political coalition, it became a unified political party on 21 April 2013.[3][4] The URS advocates decentralization and is pro-business.[5][6]

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. In 2013 URS was ousted from the government and became opposition.

The URS was an associate member of the European People's Party.[7]
