The party previously intended to take part in the next election together with the Democratic Party of Serbia and New Serbia.[1][2] In 2010 the party left the populists and together with several other parties, formed the United Regions of Serbia, a broad coalition of regional parties.

The People's Party participated in the 2012 parliamentary elections as part of the United Regions of Serbia coalition, and received 2 seats in the National Assembly. The party was expelled from the URS after it separately entered negotiations with the Democratic Party.

On 3 December 2012 the party merged into the Serbian Progressive Party and ceased to exist.[3] However, some local councils headed by Nebojša Korać opposed this decision, and controversially continued receiving finances proportional to the party's original electoral result, even though both MPs had left the party.[4]
