Politics

According to the constitution that came into force on October 6, 1980 (amended several times), Guyana is a presidential republic. The head of state, head of government and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president (elected by parliament for 5 years, re-election possible once). He is nominated by the strongest party represented in parliament and appoints the vice-president and the prime minister as well as the other members of the cabinet and the opposition leader in parliament. The legislature lies with the National Assembly (legislative period: 5 years); Of the 65 MPs, 40 are elected nationwide (proportional representation) and 25 in regional constituencies. In 2000 Parliament’s rights were strengthened; it can now force the president and the government to hold new elections by means of a vote of no confidence.

President from May 16, 2015 was D. Granger . In the elections on May 11, 2015, he led the party alliance made up of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and Alliance for Change (AFC) to a majority in parliament and thus ended the 23-year reign of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP / C). On March 2nd, 2020, court-ordered, early parliamentary elections took place, in which the APNU was initially declared the winner. International election observers, however, criticized irregularities in the counting of votes. The government and opposition agreed on a new count, at the end of which, after a long delay, the PPP / C received 51% and a parliamentary majority of 33 seats. In August 2020 Mohamed Irfaan Ali (* 1980, PPP / C)appointed new president. He is the first practicing Muslim to serve as president in South America.

National symbols

The national flag was introduced in 1966. On a green cloth it shows a white-edged yellow triangle (“golden arrow that flies over the green forests”) starting from the leech and reaching with the tip to the flying end. On top of it – also starting from the leech – is an equilateral red, black-edged triangle. Green stands for vegetation and agriculture, yellow for gold and Guyana’s mineral resources and red for the people’s dynamism and enthusiasm for reform.

The coat of arms, awarded on June 21, 1966 by the British Queen Elizabeth II, shows the national flower Victoria Regia in the upper part of the silver shield, three blue wavy lines in the middle as a symbol for the numerous bodies of water and in the lower part the typical Canje- Pheasant for the rich bird life. The upper coat of arms is a spangenhelm with a blue-silver helmet bulge, which represents the Indian crown of a cacik’s feathers, flanked by two diamonds. Two jaguars serve as shield holders, one of which also holds a sugar cane stalk, the other a pickaxe. The motto in the banner is “One People, one Nation, one Destiny” (one people, one nation, one destiny).

The national holiday is February 23. It commemorates the proclamation of the “Cooperative Republic” in 1970. On May 26, the 1966 declaration of independence is celebrated.

Parties

Among the parties that are often united in alliances, the v. a. People’s Progressive Party (PPP; founded in 1950, affiliated with the Civic Movement, PPP / C since 1991), the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR, founded in 1957 as the People’s National Congress, PNC), which is primarily based on Supports voters of African descent, as well as the multi-ethnic Alliance for Change (AFC, founded in 2005).

Unions

The Trades Union Congress (TUC; founded in 1940) is an umbrella organization with 13 individual trade unions. In 1988, the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG) split off from this and has now become the largest association in Guyana. Check thedressexplorer to see South America Trade Unions.
