For the Caidanian general election, 2017, the United People's Syndicate, the Caïd Liberal Alliance and the Democratic Tortimerist Party, they united to try to obtain absolute majority in the elections and to overcome the monarchist conservatives and the leftist forces. However, in those elections they won 4 seats, missing one for the absolute majority and having to negotiate with the monarchist conservatives a coalition government. In the following elections, those of 2018, obtained the same result, initiating an internal crisis in the coalition.
In the SPU was appointed in 2018 as general secretary Domènec Saints, of the most rightist and conservative sector, causing a strong crisis in the SPU that would move to the coalition. Domènec Saints wanted to break the coalition to attend the next elections separately or even in coalition with the UDC. Finally, the rebel sector of the SPU announced that they would also concur within the centrist coalition claiming that all possible votes should go towards centrism.
