HistoryEdit

It was formed in 2009, following the split in the leadership of the Movement for Changes (PzP). Its founder and president was Goran Batričević, former vice-president of the PzP. Party regarded itself as the moral and ideological heir of the original Group for Changes non-governmental organization.

At the 2009 parliamentary election the party participated within a centrist "For a Different Montenegro" coalition with Liberal Party of Montenegro (LP CG), which won only 2,7% of votes, just below the 3% electoral threshold.[2] After the election party activity significantly decreased, but it remained formally active, until its dissolution in 2014.
