The PA was successful in the general elections held in 1994 and 2000, as well as the presidential elections of 1994 and 1999. However, it was defeated in the general election in 2001. After the creation of the United People's Freedom Alliance in 2004, PA has been side-lined. CPSL and LSSP has threatened to revive PA as a separate front, not that has not occurred so far.
