The United Regions of Serbia (Serbian: ? , ?PC / Ujedinjeni regioni Srbije, URS) was a regionalist,[2]liberal-conservative[2] political party in Serbia. It was founded on 16 May 2010 as a political coalition, and became a unified political party on 21 April 2013.[3][4] The URS advocated decentralization and was 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 with the Serbian Progressive Party and Socialist Party of Serbia. On 31 July 2013 the URS was ousted from the government and became opposition.[7]

On 13 November 2015 the party was removed from the register of political parties and ceased to exist, which was controversial because the party had over a million euros of unpaid debt. It had already been defunct for more than a year, according to the former president Mla?an Dinki?.[8][9]

The URS was an associate member of the European People's Party.[10]
