Opening HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall on a system with LO installed, and searching for LibreOffice there, brings you to a subkey with values like

UninstallString MsiExec.exe /I{B8FF8670-C6F4-4868-9DB2-C23324C0E575}

Next, opening a command prompt (cmd.exe) and executing simple msiexec brings you its command line reference, which makes clear that /i syntax (as above) is used for installation, but for uninstallation, you need to use /x instead. Reading the reference further, you find out that there are a number of arguments to make it silent, like /qn. So having all that at hand, you could come up with a command like

msiexec.exe /x{B8FF8670-C6F4-4868-9DB2-C23324C0E575} /qn

Alternatively, Internet search could give you some useful links like this.

All the above is assuming you mean Windows installations... something not mentioned in the question at all.
