The party was founded in 1987 by

It won the 1990 elections, with [1 ] Nicholas Brathwaite becoming Prime Minister. It lost power to the NNP in the 1995 elections, which were held shortly after Brathwaite's resignation. The NDC was thereafter in opposition for 13 years. It failed to win any seats in the 1999 elections, but only narrowly lost the 2003 elections, in which it won 45.6% of the popular vote and seven of the 15 seats.
July 2008 general election, the NDC won 11 out of 15 seats, and party leader Tillman Thomas became Prime Minister. The 2013 election was won by the New National Party (Grenada) under Keith Mitchell winning all 15 seats.
The party was affiliated to the former Central American liberal organisation FELICA. The party maintains close links with the other centre-left political parties in the English-speaking Caribbean such as the
