In elections held on 18 June 1979, PFP presidential candidate Victor Owusu won 29.9% of the vote and the party won 42 of 140 seats in the National Assembly. Owusu was defeated by People's National Party (PNP) candidate Hilla Limann, 38%-62%, in a 9 July run-off election.
It was a center-right party, considered as an offshoot of the United Gold Coast Convention, which effectively evolved into the Northern People's Party in the late 1940s, the United Party in the early 1950s, the Progress Party in the late 1960s, the Popular Front Party in the 1970s and the All Popular Front in the early 1980s, before becoming the current New Patriotic Party.
