PBDS Baru was to contest 5 Dayak-majority seats in the 2016 Sarawak state election.[4][5]

PBDS Baru ahead of the 2018 general election had chosen the pig character as its mascot in which the animal has a deep meaning in the Dayak custom and symbolises the unity of the various Dayak tribes in Sarawak.[6][7] The party only accepts members from the Dayak ethnicity.[8]

PBDS Baru was deregistered by the RoS on 11 June 2019 for failing to submit its annual returns for the years 2014 to 2017 which was supposedly done by the out-going office bearers lost in party election.[9][10] The party however has its registration reinstated on 6 August 2020 by the Home Ministry following an appeal by the newly elected party leaders.[11]

The current PBDS party leadership is led by Bobby anak William who was elected President since 2019.[12] It was also one of the party components of the new Perikatan Rakyat Bersatu Sarawak (PERKASA) coalition, with another two centre-right local political parties, Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) and Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB).
