The Progressive Reform Party (PRP) was formed in the wake of the merger between the Progressive Party and the Reform Party. The decision to merge was made at simultaneously held congresses in Johannesburg. The merger of the two parties was unanimously approved and the leader of the Progressive Party, Colin Eglin, was elected as leader. The party secured eleven seats in the 171-member House of Assembly.
