In the 1999 Duma Election, the Party won 2.2% and 1,481,890 votes.

The RKRP-RPK considers the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) to be reformist but in occasion of the 2003 Duma Election the Party leaders decided to make an agreement with the CPRF in order not to disperse the communist vote.
