The Left Centre finished second to the Deák Party in elections in 1865, 1869 and 1872. It was opposed to the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, and continued to demand an independent Hungarian army.
Despite its rivalry with the Deák Party, the two merged in February 1875 to form the Liberal Party. A group of former Left Centre members broke away to reform the party in 1877, but it was not successful.
