In the parliamentary election held on April 21, 2002, the party won 1 out of 155 seats.[4][5] Its sole deputy in the National Assembly, Nderbé Kemnade, joined the Federation Parliamentary Group, which is primarily composed of the Federation, Action for the Republic (FAR) party.[5]

There is a break-away faction of ACTUS led by Ley-Ngardigal Djimadoum.
