Lee Jung-hee was the UPP candidate for the 2012 presidential election. Hoping to damage the popular votes of the Conservative party candidate, she withdrew from the 2012 presidential election on Sunday, December 16, 2012. However, her action is viewed as it has brought the opposite aftermath; many conservatives people in South Korea, who were warned after watching her actively attacking the Conservative candidate on TV show - Lee openly stated that she is participating in the TV debate to "knock Park out of the election" -, participated more in election votes.

She also drew criticism for her choice of word, referring to South Korea as "the Southern part" - a word rarely used in South Korea but often in North Korea. Following heavy criticism, she withdrew the statement.

On September 2, 2013, Lee declared that she would go on hunger strike to protest what she called the “witch hunt” against UPP member Lee Seok-ki, whom the NIS has charged with planning armed rebellion against the South Korean government.

On December 19, 2014, Mrs. Lee was removed from all political activities with the UPP party, and the party itself was removed from the Korean political scene, due to the unconstitutional nature of her party policies which deemed by the South Korean court as "pro-North Korean" Lee and other members of her party were removed and the party disbanded.
