Although Sudraba had a clean image amongst the Latvian public, the 2014 election campaign saw her being filmed having lunch with an oligarch. In addition, she has refused to fully answer questions about the party's funding. The party campaigned on a general platform of fair wages and pensions, as well as increasing the accountability of government. In the parliamentary elections in October 2014 the party passed the electoral threshold, ensuring representation in the Saeima.
In January 2018, the party faction was removed from Saeima lists due to not having the minimal amount of MPs needed for a parliamentary group, following member Ringolds Balodis’ withdrawal from For Latvia from the Heart.
