It joined DPS and SDP in 1998 election, and it participated in Government with the two until 2001. But, when DPS and SDP openly stated that they are proponents of full Montenegrin independence. People's Party of Montenegro left the coalition and the Government. Afterwards, it was mostly in coalition with pro-union with Serbia parties. After the referendum, the People's Party refused to acknowledge the result due to allegations of irregularities. After failing to achieve parliamentary status in 2009 and 2012 elections, People's Party activity significantly decreased, but it remained formally active until its dissolution in 2017.
