The grouping was founded by then Prime Minister Maati Bouabid in 1983 and favoured by King Hassan II. In the 1984 parliamentary election, it won the greatest number of seats, but remained far from an absolute majority. Later it became an ordinary party without a special role in Morocco's multi-party system.
In the parliamentary election held on 27 September 2002, the party won 16 out of 325 seats. In the next parliamentary election, held on 7 September 2007, the party won 27 out of 325 seats. After the 2011 election, the number of seats dropped to 23 in the enlarged House of Representatives with 395 seats.
