APF, which passed several contradictory stages (extension of popular movement, political successes and splits, January 20 tragedy and etc.) in 1989-1990, 1990-1992 and 1992-1993, was in the leading positions in the political system in the ensuing years. In 1995 APF turned into the political party and became APFP. Majority of parties functioning in Azerbaijan today was established in APF’s base.
