General elections were held in Liechtenstein on 3 February 1978. The result was a victory for the Patriotic Union, which won 8 of the 15 seats in the Landtag, despite the Progressive Citizens' Party winning more votes. Voter turnout was 95.7%, although only male citizens were allowed to vote.[1]

Results

Party Votes % Seats +/–
Progressive Citizens' Party 18,872 50.8 7 –1
Patriotic Union 18,244 49.2 8 +1
Invalid/blank votes 45
Total 4,670 100 15 0
Registered voters/turnout 4,879 95.7

Note that the total number of votes is lower than the total for the parties, as each voter has as many votes as there are seats in a constituency, and thus can cast multiple votes.
