The VMRO–NP was founded as an alternative to VMRO-DPMNE, as part of a disagreement with many of the policies of Ljubčo Georgievski's successor, Nikola Gruevski. The VMRO–NP's statute allowed dual membership in both parties. Its party program closely resembles that of the VMRO–DPMNE.[citation needed]

In the 2006 parliamentary election, VMRO–NP won 6.1% of the vote and 6 seats in the Assembly. In the 2011 parliamentary election, VMRO–NP received 28,500 votes (2.51%), losing all of its seats. VMRO–NP remained an extra-parliamentary party until the 2020 parliamentary election, when it participated in the We Can alliance led by the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia and won one seat.

Since 2002, the Macedonian political bloc has become more fragmented as small parties have emerged, such as the centre-right oriented VMRO-NP (VMRO People's Party) as a fraction of VMRO-DPMNE (founded by the former leader of VMRO-DPMNE) and the centre-left NSDP (New Social-Democratic Party) as an offshoot of SDSM.
