The JWP is a registered political party with Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and its election symbol is wheel. The JWP was established in 1989 by Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, who had served as governor as well as chief minister Balochistan.

Shazain Bugti is the current president of the party and contesting for the National Assembly seat from his native constituency of Dera Bugti. He became president of JWP after the death of his father Talal Akbar Bugti in April 2015.
