It was founded in 1990, its first president being Dragan Veselinov.[1] At this point, its policies were autonomist. In the 1990 election it won one seat. In 1992 it entered into a coalition with theCivic Alliance of Serbia, and in the 1993 election both parties joined the centre-right DEPOS coaliton, headed by Vuk Drašković, and won one seat.[2] In the 1997 election it was part of the regionalist Vojvodina Coalition.

In the 2007 election the party ran on Serbian Renewal Movement's list,[4] which won no seats. In the 2012 election it was part of a centre-right coalition around the Serbian Progressive Party and won one seat.[5] In the 2014 election it was not formally in coalition with the Serbian Progressive Party, however it won one seat as Marijan Rističević was listed on the Progressives' electoral list.[6]
