The People's Progressive Party is a moderate political party in the Gambia. It was the dominant ruling party from 1965 with president Dawda Jawara. He was elected for a sixth term of office in 1992, but was overthrown in a coup by young army officers in 1994. The party was banned from the 1996 and 1997 elections.
In 2005, the PPP joined the opposition National Alliance for Democracy and Development (NADD).
