In a letter dated July 8, 2015, with reference number INEC/DEPM/DPC/511/11 and signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Mrs. Augusta Ogakwu, the commission said the Democratic People's Congress was registered at its meeting on Friday June 19, 2015.

It further stated that the party constitution, manifesto, logo, flag and the list of the National Executive Officers were also approved, adding that the certificate of registration would be issued in due course.

National Chairman of the new party, Rev. Olusegun Peters, said the DPC will participate actively in the democratic process "in our quest at building a just society."

He added that the party will also take part in the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.

Peters said, "We are going to take part in all the elections coming up in the country anytime from now.
