Formed by Ooi Boon Ewe, an independent candidate in the 2001 General Election, it was approved in the midst of the 2006 GE and a few days late for nomination. In 2011, Ooi missed the GE again when an assentor did not turn up. Having failed every attempt to qualify for the Presidential Election since 1999, he abandoned the party in 2011 to try again, without success for the third time.
