The party was formed as a new liberal political block. However, it has always been dominated by one person – the impeached president Rolandas Paksas. And since his impeachment in 2004, the party has struggled to gain popularity. Moreover, over time it has become more radical: it has become more nationalist, sometimes fascist, with pro-Russia inclinations. Recently, some party leaders have been trying to reignite the party by sidelining Rolandas Paksas.
