The BPF Party or PBNF was founded as the Belarusian Popular Front “Revival” in 1988 but was forced to change its name when the use of the words ‘National’, ‘Popular’ and ‘People’s’ were restricted in the names of political parties by the government in 2005. It describes itself as centre-right and believes in Conservatism, Liberal conservatism, Christian Democracy and Belorussian nationalism.
To date the party has been unsuccessful in getting any of its candidates elected to parliament or the presidency and it has worked with other parties in coalitions over the years.
The BPF party is a member of the Centrist Democrat International and an Associate member of the International Democrat Union (IDU). It is also an Observer member of the European People’s Party (EPP).
