The party was founded in 1957, in response to the death of former president Ramon Magsaysay, by Manuel Manahan and Raul Manglapus. It was intended that the party pursue the goal of promoting reforms in policy and institution, and fighting graft and corruption that was alleged to be common in both the liberal and conservative members of the government in both the local and the national level. Other notables of the party included Vicente Araneta, who lost the vice-presidency to Diosdado Macapagal in 1957, and former members Blas Ople, and Richard Gordon, now a senator for the Nacionalistas.

Some stood against the martial rule of the 1970's, and some helped Marcos in running the country, trying to reform the country through the system at the time. This division has kept the party weak ever since, and has delayed it from running for office. To date, the Progressives have contested 3 elections during the late 1950's and 1960's.
