The NCP's self-reported doctrine is moderate. Ali Tarhouni, the founder and leader of the NCP, declared in an interview taken by a journalist of Libya Herald: "Moderation is the name of our movement. We are moderate. We are in the middle. I think any radicalization of Islam is something that we oppose. We strongly oppose that. We grew up in this country and we basically don’t practice these things that they do and I hope that they stop because Libya does not really condone that."
NCP competed in the Libyan General National Congress election, 2012. The party received 2 of the 80 party-list seats, and with others political parties is in minority.
