The UCR contested the 1992 general elections, but received just 219 votes and failed to win a seat; the electoral law allowing political parties representing ethnic minority groups to be exempt from the electoral threshold only applied as long as they received 10% of the vote required for a single seat in the Chamber of Deputies. It again failed to win a seat in the 1996 elections as it received just 486 votes, but the 2000 elections saw the party receive 11,084 votes, winning a seat for the first time. It has won a seat in every election since.
