The current party was founded on 23 July 2011. The party is a merger of All For Latvia! and For Fatherland and Freedom/LNNK. Their support has been rising since their creation, and in the last parliament election they received 151,567 votes and won 17 out of 100 seats in the Saeima.[1] In the 2014 European election, they received 63,229 votes and won 1 out of 8 seats.

The party is based on nationalism and conservatism.[2] They are Eurosceptic, meaning that they are against the European Union.[3] The party also wants the government to have a stricter anti-Russia stance.[4][5]
