The NDPP was formed by Naga People's Front rebels who supported former Chief Minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio, and split to form the Democratic Progressive Party. In October 2017, the DPP changed its name to 'Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party'.
In January 2018, former Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio joined the party after the Naga People's Front broke its ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party for 2018 Nagaland Legislative Assembly election. The NDPP is now in alliance with the BJP. Within the same month, 10 NPF MLAs quit the party and began negotiations with the NDPP.
In the 2018 Nagaland Legislative Assembly election, the NDPP won 18 seats with 2,53,090 votes and 25.20% vote share. They then came to power in a coalition with the BJP.
On 22 September 2018, Imtikumzuk Longkumer, NDPP Member of Nagaland Legislative Assembly from Aonglenden constituency, died.
