The party was created with the purpose of attracting centre-right support for Emmanuel Macron for the 2022 French presidential election.[5] Ahead of the 2022 legislative elections, it formed a coalition with two other centrist parties – Democratic Movement (MoDem) and La République En Marche! – to coordinate which candidates it presents.[6]
