Advantage for Governing PPPC in Guyana

May 17, 2006

(Angus Reid Global Scan) – The People’s Progressive Party / Civic (PPPC) heads to the legislative election in Guyana as the early favourite, according to a poll by Dick Morris. 40 per cent of respondents would vote for the PPPC in this year’s ballot.

The People’s National Congress/Reform (PNCR) is second with 36 per cent, followed by the Alliance for Change (AFC) with 21 per cent. Three per cent of respondents would vote for other parties.

Bharrat Jagdeo has served as Guyana’s president since 1999, following the resignation of Janet Jagan. In the March 2001 election, the PPPC received 53 per cent of the vote and secured 34 seats in the 65-member National Assembly.

The next general election is expected to take place before September. Jagdeo will once again lead the PPPC. Robert Corbin will command the opposition PNCR, and Raphael Trotman heads the AFC.

Guyana attained its independence from Britain in 1966, and became a republic four years later.

Morris is currently working as a campaign strategist for the AFC.
