|Merger of||Malta Political Association|
|Merged into||Nationalist Party|
The party was established in 1920 by a merger of the Malta Political Association and the Patriotic Committee. It emerged as the largest party in Parliament as a result of the 1921 elections, and its leader Joseph Howard became the country's first Prime Minister.
The 1924 elections saw the party reduced to 10 seats, and it had to form a coalition with the Democratic Nationalist Party to stay in power. In 1926 the two parties merged to form the Nationalist Party.
