At the October 2008 parliamentary elections, LiCS retained 8 seats out of its previous 18 and received 5.3% of the national vote, and formed a coalition with the Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats, Liberal Movement, and National Resurrection Party (TPP).
On 22 September 2011 the party agreed to absorb the TPP, whose MPs had been sitting in the LiCS parliamentary group.
At the October 2012 parliamentary elections the party lost all 8 seats, taking just 2.1% of the national vote.
