The party was formed on 22 October 1968, during the sixth Knesset, when Elias Nakhleh broke away from Progress and Development.[1]

For the 1969 elections, Nakhleh merged the party into Cooperation and Brotherhood, effectively swapping parties with Jabr Muadi, who had begun the session as a member of Cooperation and Brotherhood, then left to set up the Israeli Druze Faction, before joining Progress and Development.
