Founded in mid 2009 by Drogue and others including independent MP Kolya in the hope of bridging the chasm between the left and the right, the Centre Party went on to produce some of the most successful bills in the term winning over both political dimensions. At their first election in November 2009, they managed to win 4 MP seats in Parliament, missing out on 5 by a single vote. Subsequent elections have resulted in the party winning around 4/5 MPs. Drogue resigned as leader in mid 2010 and Smack replaced him. In mid 2011, Smack resigned, and was replaced by cab12 and jsb123 in joint leadership.,
After the April 2011 election, the Centre Party entered into a coalition with Labour, TSR UKIP and the Lib Dems. After leaving government following the Autumn 2011 election, the party became inactive and was deleted. All remaining members joined the Lib Dems.
The Centre Party stood in 5 General Elections, with its best performance coming in the October 2010 General Election where it won 5 seats.
