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.
