The alliance was formed prior to the parliamentary election, and consisted of the Movement for the People's Alternative, the 30th April Movement and some other political leaders.[1] It joined the Presidential Movement, an alliance of supporters of Mathieu Kérékou, who had won the 2001 presidential elections. The Key Force won 5 out of 83 seats in the elections.[2]

In the 2007 parliamentary election the alliance won 4 seats.[3] It joined the Union Makes the Nation alliance for the 2011 elections, with the Union winning 30 seats.
