The National Development Party (NDP) was a minor political party in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
The NDP was formed by B. J. Moss and Dr. André Rollins in 2008. They were motivated by a belief that there was no clear vision or plan for the development of The Bahamas being articulated by either of the established political parties.
The NDP’s primary philosophical beliefs were that the Party needed to focus on the philosophy and not the cult of personality, and on political ideology instead of political idolatry. Hence, the NDP formed an executive steering committee that would be responsible for the formative development of the party from its embryonic stages into a viable political organization.
In October 2009, the Party’s steering committee elected Dr. André Rollins as its chairman. In August 2010, Renward Wells was elected as its chairman. Wells would lead the executive steering committee until November 2010 when the party held its first National Convention, during which he became the party's first leader.
