The African People's Convention is a political party formed by Themba Godi, former deputy leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress of Azania via floor crossing legislation, on September 4, 2007. Godi defected along with the PAC's only two provincial representatives, Eastern Cape MPL Zingisa Mkabile and Gauteng MPL Malesela Ledwaba. Godi is the current leader of the APC in parliament. The party retained its seat in the National Assembly in the 2009 elections, although it lost both of its representatives in the provincial legislatures of Gauteng and Eastern Cape.
It retained its seat in the 2014 election.
Like the PAC, the party's ideology officially appeals to "Africanists, Pan Africanists and socialists".
