The party was founded by Attie Beukes in May 1989 as the Workers Revolutionary Party. It joined the United Democratic Front (UDF) alliance for participation in the 1989 elections. The UDF won four seats in this election for the Constituent Assembly of Namibia, none of which went to the WRP.
The party registered for the 2009 election as the fourteenth and final party. Beukes, the party's candidate for president, received 1,005 votes, which was the lowest total of all candidates. The CPN received 810 votes, which was the lowest of all contesting parties and did not qualify them for a seat in the National Assembly. Beukes received his highest vote total in the Mariental Rural constituency in the Hardap Region and the CPN received its highest vote total in the Gibeon, Hardap Region constituency.
