The formation of the PPP followed a declaration made on 28th December 2011 by Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom for progressive and independent-minded people to rise and cause to be formed an alternative political movement to compete for political power for a major transformation of the Ghanaian society.
The interim leadership of the progressive movement began a nationwide campaign to recruit members to form Interim Regional and Constituency Executives. The team visited all the ten regions of Ghana.
In January 2012 the party submitted an application to the Electoral Commission (EC) for registration in accordance with the Political Parties Act.
