It was founded on December 21, 2006 by the merger of the Evangelical-influenced Liberal Party (Partido Liberal, PL) and the right Party of the Reconstruction of the National Order (Partido da Reedificação da Ordem Nacional, PRONA).
Sergio Victor Tamer, the party's founder, was president from 2006-2014. Alfredo Nascimento succeeded Tamer as the president of the PR until April 2016 when he resigned due to the party leadership not supporting the Impeachment of Dilma Rousseff. However, 26 of the PR's MPs did vote for her impeachment.
On 7 May 2019, the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) voted to approve a motion of the party to change its name back to Liberal Party (PL).
