The National Development Party (NDP) was political party in Kenya which was of national importance between 1994 and 2001.Being an unimportant splinter group until 1994 it was joined by Raila Odinga after he left Ford-Kenya when he did not win the leadership of that party. Odinga pulled the Ford-members of parliament from Nyanza Province with him. They won the by-elections stipulated by Kenyan law after a party change thus propelling NDP to the position of a major opposition party in the Kenyan parliament.The party managed to retain its strong position in Nyanza region mainly among the Luo population during the 1997 elections when it returned 21 members to parliament.

Yvon Godin (born May 12, 1955 in Bathurst, New Brunswick) is a Canadian politician. Godin is currently a New Democratic Party (NDP) Member of Parliament (MP) in the Canadian House of Commons, representing the riding of Acadie Bathurst since 1997. Previously, Godin was a labour representative for the United Steelworkers. He is the current Whip of the NDP caucus, and is the NDP critic of Official Languages, Employment Insurance, Intergovernmental Affairs and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. In 2003, he supported Bill Blaikie''s campaign to lead the NDP. As federal MP, Godin had a strained relationship with former New Democratic Party of New Brunswick leader Elizabeth Weir. Following her resignation in 2005, however, there were rumours that Godin might resign his federal seat and run to replace her as provincial party leader at the party''s 2005 leadership convention. Ultimately, Godin declined to stand as a candidate, and Allison Brewer was elected NB NDP leader.

The CCF's leadership restructured the party during the next three years, and in 1961 it was formally merged with the Canadian Labour Congress to create the New Democratic Party. Most provincial wings of the CCF also transformed themselves into "New Democratic Party" organizations before the year was over, with Saskatchewan as the only exception. There was very little opposition to the change in Manitoba, and the Manitoba NDP was formally constituted on November 4, 1961. Future Manitoba NDP leader Howard Pawley was one of the few CCF members to oppose the change. Outgoing CCF leader Russell Paulley easily won the new party's leadership, defeating two minor figures who offered little in the way of policy alternatives.

Before 2003, when a modified one member, one vote (OMOV) system was adopted, every biennial convention of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) and its successor, the New Democratic Party, was a leadership convention. However, in practice, contested elections were held only when there was a declared leadership race. In 2001, a rare exception to this occurred when Socialist Caucus member Marcel Hatch challenged Alexa McDonough from the floor of the convention, however, McDonough easily retained the leadership in the resulting vote. It also seems that in 1973 Douglas Campbell unsuccessfully challenged David Lewis' leadership. CCF leaders J.S. Woodsworth in 1933, M.J. Coldwell in 1942 and Hazen Argue in 1960 were all elected by acclamation.

Any party member, aged 25 or under is automatically a member of the NDYC and is eligible to attend and vote in the Youth Conventions on both the provincial/territorial and national levels. Unlike the youth wings of some other political parties, the NDYC acts as an autonomous caucus within the main party. It sends its own delegates to federal and provincial conventions and councils. Traditionally, members of the NDYC have tended to be more ideologically driven than the rest of the party. Since Jack Layton took over the helm of the party in 2003, the youth base has grown and now incorporates a wider base of progressive youth.
The 40th Canadian Parliament is the current Parliament of Canada, with the membership of its House of Commons determined by the results of the 2008 federal election held on October 14, 2008, and it opened on November 18, 2008. It was then prorogued by the Governor General on December 4, 2008, on the request of Prime Minister Stephen Harper in the face of a likely non-confidence motion and a coalition agreement between the NDP and the Liberal Party of Canada with the support of the Bloc Québécois . Of the 308 MPs elected at the October 14, 2008, general election, 64 are new to Parliament and three of those sat in previous Parliaments other than the 39th: John Duncan, Jack Harris and Roger Pomerleau

He represented the Halifax Atlantic riding in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly from 1991 to 2003. He succeeded Alexa McDonough as leader of the Nova Scotia New Democratic Party (NDP) in 1996. He served as the leader of the Official Opposition in the Nova Scotia Legislature from 1998 to 1999. Today he runs his own private consulting business and sits on the Board of Governors of Dalhousie University. The NDP scored a surprise electoral success in the 1997 federal election, winning six of Nova Scotia's eleven electoral districts. This new-found electoral success boded well for the NDP's provincial party, which was able to take advantage of the new wave of popularity. Prior to 1997, the Nova Scotia NDP had not been considered contenders to form a provincial government.
