In the 2015 legislative elections held on 6 December, Fatherland for All backed the governmental electoral alliance Great Patriotic Pole (GPP). On this occasion, the party did not win any constituency representative out of 167 seats available at the unicameral National Assembly. Thus, it has no deputies of its own for the 2016–2021 term and is bound by law[3] to renew its credentials with the National Electoral Council to keep functioning as a political party. In the previous 2010 legislative elections, Fatherland for All had won 2 out of 165 seats in the National Assembly.

In 2020, a fraction of the party requested the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) to intervene the organization. The Constitutional Chamber responded in less than 24 hours to the request, dissolving the board of directors headed by Rafael Uzcátegui and replacing it with one headed by Medina. The PPT was the second intervened party that was part of the Great Patriotic Pole but broke away as a dissidence, the first being the Tupamaro party. It was also the fifth party to be intervened in total, the others being Democratic Action, Justice First and Popular Will.[4][5][6]
