The Democratic People's Party was formed in 1992 after the ban on political party activity was lifted by the Provisional National Defence Council government of Ghana. The party claims to follow the Nkrumahist tradition along with the People's National Convention (PNC), Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), National Reform Party (NRP) and the Convention People's Party (CPP).
The party formed the "Progressive Alliance" with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Every Ghanaian Living Everywhere (EGLE) for the presidential election in December 1992.Their common presidential candidate was Jerry Rawlings of the NDC. This alliance continued through the 1996 elections with the party not fielding its own candidates. The party however started fielding its own presidential and parliamentary candidates since the December 2000 elections but has won no seats in parliament.
The presidential nominee of the party, Thomas N. Ward-Brew, a lawyer, was hours late submitting his nomination documents and was unable to contest the Ghanaian presidential election on 7 December 2004.
