Prior to the 2005 Galician elections, the PPdeG had been in power for 15 years. In the election the party won one seat shy of an absolute majority. The other two parties with deputies (Spanish Socialist Workers' Party and Galician Nationalist Bloc) were then able to form a governing coalition.

The party returned to power in the 2009 Galician elections, and has been the governing party since.
