In October 2017, Democratic Progressive Party was renamed as Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party. The party was formed by Naga People's Front rebels who supports former Chief Minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio.
In January 2018, former Chief Minister of Nagaland 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.
On 22 September 2018, Imtikumzuk Longkumer NDPP Member of Nagaland Legislative Assembly from Aonglenden constituency died.
