They boycotted the 1992 general election along with the SDF, but in 1997 they won five seats in the 180 seat National Assembly; however, it boycotted the presidential election held a few months later.
In the 2002 election they held five seats again and in 2007 they dropped one seat, holding four seats out of 180.
In presidential elections, they were unable to agree on a joint candidate with the SDF in 2004 and went on to fight the election with a coalition of smaller parties; Adamou Ndam Njoya came third with 4.48% of the vote.
