After the 1949 retreat to Taiwan, until the legalization of full multi-party system in 1987, the party was one of three legal parties, along with the Kuomintang and the Chinese Youth Party but had a limited impact on the national politics during that period. In late 1980s, the party suffered from three splits, which resulted in formation of new parties by the breakaway groups, and lost most of its influence, failing to gain the elected representation onwards, but it still exists, although seems to have no online presence.
