History

The party was founded by renaming and reforming the National Association - Bulgarian Agrarian People's Union NS-BZNS, which had been part of the United Democratic Forces, decided on the fourth congress of the NS-BZNS in the end of 2005 Its main goal is fighting corruption In the 2007 European election, RZS won only 05% of the vote By the time of the 2009 election, this had increased to 47%, with RZS claiming that only electoral fraud had prevented it from receiving 10%, which would have given it two seats

A month later, RZS took part in elections to the National Assembly Its parliamentary ticket was headed by Atanas Semov, a law professor at the University of Sofia Its platform called for the formation of a stable center-right coalition that would exclude the Bulgarian Socialist Party, a proactive campaign against political corruption, compulsory education until age 16, greater efforts to fight illiteracy, and the rejection of ethnic nationalism in politics

The election saw RZS win 413% of the vote: just clearing the 4% threshold and entitling it to ten seats The party supported the new centre-right government under Boyko Borisov, but refused to sign an official declaration of support, after pressure from the European Conservatives and Reformists over the involvement of Attack One of RZS's MPs, Mario Tagarinski, left the party on 9 December 2009, pushing the party below the minimum of ten MPs required to form an official parliamentary group Another MP, Dimitar Choukarski, left on 11 March 2010, reducing it further to eight MPs

The party nominated Atanas Semov for president during the 2011 presidential election He finished seventh with only 184% of the popular vote

In the 2013 parliamentary election the party won only 167% of the popular vote and failed to win a seat
