The PM party had formed a coalition with the Together 2014 party; together, they won four seats in the national assembly and one seat in the European Parliament. Dialogue for Hungary has taken one seat from the four in the Hungarian parliament and has one representative in Brussels.

On 24 August 2016, spokesperson Bence Tordai announced that the shortened form of the party's name would change to "Dialogue".[2] In September 2016, the party's logo was changed to Párbeszéd (Dialogue), instead of "PM" by removing the word Hungary.

In spring of 2018 the party formed alliance with MSZP. In 2019 local election party's chairman Gergely Karacsony has been elected as Mayor of Budapest.
