It was founded as the "Movement of United Local Self-Governments" (PULS) in 2010, and in subsequent years, served in several right-wing coalitions. Shortly after the 2018 Belgrade election, it merged with the civic group "Aleksandar Šapić – Mayor" to form SPAS. The party participated in the 2020 parliamentary election, winning 3.83% of the popular vote and 11 seats in the National Assembly. SPAS served as a part of the SNS-led government until its dissolution. In early May 2021, the SNS and SPAS began negotiating about SPAS merging into the Serbian Progressive Party, and on 26 May it was announced to the public that the party has been dissolved. It was officially merged into the SNS three days later.
