Radical Change or PCR emerged in 1998 as a breakaway group from the Colombian Liberal Party. It describes itself as Centre-right and believes in Conservative liberalism and Classical liberalism.
In the 2002 general election Radical Change took two of the 102 seats in the Senate and seven of the 166 seats in the Chamber of Representatives. In 2006 they increased their representation to 15 of 102 seats in the upper house and 20 of 163 seats in the lower chamber. They were, by this time, supporting the incumbent president, Álvaro Uribe.
In 2010 the party dropped back slightly, taking eight of 102 seats in the Senate and 15 of 164 seats in the Chamber of Representatives.
