The QED managed to muster 354,578 votes in the 2014 Indian general election.

The QED merged with the Samajwadi Party on 21 June 2016. The Samajwadi Party parliamentary board, however, cancelled the merger and revoked the expulsion of the Balram Yadav from the cabinet. [1][2] On 26 January 2017, the QED merged with the Bahujan Samaj Party.[3]
