The Union of Centrists (Greek: Ένωση Κεντρώων "Enosi Kentroon") is a political party in Greece without parliamentary representation.

The party was founded by Vassilis Leventis in 1992 under the title "Union of Centrists and Ecologists". This title changes little after. This party is continued by the old party Center UnionThe 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, its total influence has been marginal, with 1.2% of the total vote (in the 1994 European Parliament election) being its highest achievement ever. This percentage has furthermore declined to 0.56% at the European Parliament election of 2004.
