The party describes itself as a republican, federal, radical, secular, pacifist and environmentalist party. It maintains close links with the Nonviolent Radical Party.

Caudillo Francisco Franco's death in 1975 allowed for the founding of new political parties. Republican Left was formed in 1977 and in April 1986 became a founding member of the United Left electoral alliance, which it broke away from in 2002. It participated in the 2004 election, winning 0.07% of the vote. It rejoined United Left in 2011.
