In response to the demands of the Namibian people, the IPC was
created on 2nd August 2020 as a fully-fledged political party with the election of its leadership and acceptance of its constitution. The IPC stands for grassroots participatory democracy, built on the principles of honesty, integrity, dignity, and rule of law. The IPC provides a political home for all Namibians irrespective of their cultural, tribal, ethnic, or social status, independent of any past or existing political affiliation, with a clear mandate to restore the dignity of our people. This makes the IPC the most diverse and most multi-represented party on the Namibian political landscape. After a very successful regional and local election in November 2020, the IPC became the second largest political party in Namibia and the unofficial opposition.

Where we are now
IPC formed a majority coalition in Windhoek to control the city councel and have mayors in towns across the country, including Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. With a Voter turnout of 38.26 IPC managed to gain 17.49% of the support. The opportunity thus lies in a larger voter turnout. That is why the responsibility lies with every Namibian to take part in the democratic process.
