Originally named the Partido ng Masang Pilipino, the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) emanated from an organization which was an offshoot of the Economic Recovery Action Program (ERAP) organized by Mr. George S. Antonio in May 1990. The ERAP organization was formally launched on October 4, 1990 with 21 original members.
The organization grew exponentially with the recruitment of members nationwide. It was then that the PMP was accredited as a political party with the objective of helping to uplift the lives of the Filipino people, especially the poor and the disadvantaged, through effective and efficient social and economic reforms. Its first campaign headquarters was located at the 4th floor of San Buena Building, Edsa corner Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. On August 20, 1991, Partido ng Masang Pilipino was accredited as political party.
In 1992, PMP took its first major political step by fielding then Senator Joseph Estrada as its vice-presidential candidate together with other local candidates. Under PMP, Mr. Estrada overwhelmingly won against his four opponents.
The PMP also participated in the May 1995 election. In 1997, a permanent and fully operational headquarters was established at 409 Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. In 1998, PMP was very much involved in the election with the candidacy of Estrada as President and other local candidates nationwide. PMP played a lead role in the establishment of the opposition coalition Laban ng Malayang Masang Pilipino (LAMMP), which also counted among its members the Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) and Nationalist People\'s Coalition (NPC). The coalition fielded full slates for the national and local levels. Card- bearing members reached as high as 3.2 million nationwide. In the end, close to 11 million Filipinos overwhelmingly voted Joseph Estrada into office as the 13th President of the Republic of the Philippines.
In 2001, PMP once again led the opposition coalition, with majority of its candidates elected into office, led by Dr. Luisa Ejercito Estrada who won a seat in the Senate.
Two years later, in 2003, the name Partido ng Masang Pilipino was changed to Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino.
In April 2004, the PMP agreed to enter into a coalition with the Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) and Partido Demokratiko Pilipino- Lakas Bayan (PDP LABAN) to form the Koalisyon ng Nagkakaisang Pilipino (KNP) and support the candidacy of Fernando Poe, Jr. for President of the Republic of the Philippines.
Today, PMP occupies three Senate seats as a member of the minority
floor, occupied by Estrada's wife,
Luisa Ejercito Estrada , who won in
2001, his son, former San Juan suburb
In the 14 May 2007 election , the party won 3 seats in the House of Representatives . Members of the Philippine House of Representatives are elected to serve three year terms.
