In 2000 it changed its name to the current one, merging with the group that tried to organize the National Humanist Party. In 2006, the party had officialized its merger with the Popular Socialist Party (PPS) and Party of National Mobilization (PMN) in order to form the Democratic Mobilization, a new association created in order to circumvent the restrictions of the barrier clause, but with its overthrow, the association was broken up and the parties separated.

In 2018, after not getting enough electoral votes to keep receiving funds from the Brazilian supreme electoral court, the party decided to disband itself and merge with Podemos.[2]
