Founded in March 2015 by Žarko Rakčević, a civil engineer and former member and president of Social Democratic Party, before the 2016 parliamentary election URA had two MPs in the Parliament of Montenegro: Dritan Abazović and Miloš Konatar, both elected in 2012 from the electoral list of Positive Montenegro.
In September 2016, URA decided to enter the Key Coalition with Demos and SNP in order to participate at the forthcoming parliamentary election. The Key Coalition won 11.05% of votes and 9 seats, two of them being won by URA candidates. In 2017, Dritan Abazović was elected as the new party leader.
Civic Movement URA decided to run independently at the 2020 parliamentary election, presenting its green politics and anti-corruption "In black and white" election platform, led by independent candidates, including well known journalist and activist Milka Tadić, some university professors, journalists, civic and NGO activists, with the party leader Dritan Abazović as a ballot carrier. URA electoral list also contains one representative of the Bosniak minority interests Justice and Reconciliation Party, as well of some minor localist parties and initiatives.
