It was originally established on 16 August 1998 as the Nahdatul Ummat Party (Partai Nahdatul Ummat) and took part in the 1999 legislative election, winning 5 seats in the People's Representative Council. However, Law No. 31/2002 on Political Parties stated that parties failing to win at least 3 percent of the vote were not eligible to participate in the next election. Therefore, the party changed its name and on 5 March 2003 the Indonesian Nahdlatul Community Party was officially founded.

In the 2004 legislative election, the party won 0.8% of the popular vote and lost all 5 seats. After initially failing to qualify, following a lawsuit the party won the right to contest the 2009 elections, in which it won only 0.14 percent of the vote, lower from the electoral threshold of at least 2,5%, again without any seats of the People's Representative Council.[1][2][3][4][5]
