Known widely by its three-letter acronym in Serbian, GSS was founded and registered in 1992.
Following the election, the Republican Club led by Neboj?a Popov and the Reform Party of Serbia led by Vesna Pe?i? (Serbian successor to Ante Markovi?'s SFR Yugoslavia-wide Union of Reform Forces party) merged into the party. Both had went in coalition with the League of Social Democrats of Vojvodina.
In 1996 ?arko Kora? left the GSS with a group of dissidents who opposed forming coalition with the right-wing Serbian Renewal Movement for the 1996 federal election and formed the Social Democratic Union (SDU).
In late March 2007, Civic Alliance ceased its existence as a distinct political entity when it merged into the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP).
Notable members over the years included Goran Svilanovi?, former Foreign Minister of Serbia and Montenegro, Nata?a Mi?i?, former parliamentary president and acting president of Serbia, Ga?o Knezevi?, former Serbian Minister of Education, and Vesna Pe?i?, the party founder and longtime leader.
The future of the party had been in doubt ever since it split into two wings. One part promoted a merger with Democratic Party, while the other part wanted to continue political existence as an independent party. The December 2004 party congress upheld the decision to remain an independent party and elected Nata?a Mi?i? as the new leader. The party decided to apply for membership of the ELDR and the Liberal International. At its May 2004 council, ELDR, accepted GSS as an affiliate member.
However, GSS merged into Liberal Democratic Party on April 7, 2007.
