CP participated in the 2018 general election within the centre-left coalition centred on the Democratic Party (PD) along with Together (notably including the Italian Socialist Party) and the liberal[1] More Europe.[4]

The coalition's symbol consisted in a stylised peony, Lorenzin's name and the logos of Italy of Values, the Centrists for Europe (CpE), the Union for Trentino, Italy is Popular and Popular Alternative (AP). The coalition also included Solidary Democracy, Popular Italy and the Christian Popular Union, although their logos did not appear in the coalition's symbol.

In the event, the list obtained a mere 0.5% of the vote, but three of its candidates were elected in single-seat constituencies: Lorenzin and Gabriele Toccafondi (both members of AP) to the Chamber and Pier Ferdinando Casini (CpE) to the Senate.

In September 2019 Lorenzin joined the PD[5][6] and Toccafondi Renzi's new Italia Viva party.[7][8]
