The FHL nominated 16 candidates in the 2016 general election, 10 for Constituencies and 6 party list, but failed to gain any seats.[2]


The FHL was formed in order to oppose the legalization of same-sex marriage via its counterproposal, a referendum petition that advocated "family protection" by only allowing the husband-wife relationship, consanguinity and familial ethics, and cannot be passed without a national vote.[3]


The party was established on 6 September 2015, which is for running the proportional seats in the Legislative Yuan.
