Although frequently having a majority in the Cape Parliament, it never governed directly, generally forming coalitions with English speaking politicians. These included the Scanlen ministry, the administration of Cecil John Rhodes with which it split after the Jameson Raid and John X. Merriman, the last Prime Minister of the Cape Colony, 1908-1910, prior to the formation of the Union of South Africa on May 31st 1910. After Union, it ceased to be an independent party, merging with the South African Party in the Union parliament.
In 1882 it was able to have Dutch recognised as an official language of the Cape Colony.
