Guyana Resource Center
Set like a gem in the crown of South America, nestled on the North-Eastern shoulder, defying the raging Atlantic Ocean, Guyana's many waterways reflect the source of it's name "The Land of Many Waters"

Despite a wealth of natural resources, Guyana has not been able to grow and develop into a strong, successful state because of political conflict that has resulted from:

• Political parties playing on racial fears and

• The “winner-take-all” system.

This results in one or the other of the two major ethnic groups feeling marginalized when the party that “represents the other group” is in power.

Past attempts to address differences through dialogue between the two major parties have failed.

There have been many calls for shared governance as a solution, which the major parties have ignored.

During forty years of independence, political parties have had ample opportunity to make a difference. They have not acted in the best interest of the nation.

IT IS TIME-IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE

The AFC believes that when elected to power, it is our responsibility to ensure that all Guyanese share in the benefits derived from reduced crime, a stable political environment and an improved economy.

We believe that to accomplish this we must make a drastic change. The development of our country must be the only priority and we must be courageous enough to make this a reality.

The AFC therefore publicly commits that:-

1. Should it win the majority vote in the next general elections, it would reserve as many as 50% of Cabinet positions for other parliamentary parties and technocrats.

2. It will work with locally and internationally recognized bodies such as the Commonwealth Secretariat, CARICOM and the OAS to develop a code of conduct for all participating parties in this Government of National Unity and Development.

Guyana and the Guyanese people cannot afford to continue with “business as usual” or the “winner takes all” system. This is a bold new approach and it will change our political culture and by extension the lives of ordinary citizens.

Our only hope now is for all of Guyana’s people to feel that their hopes can be realised. This change will result in representation and prosperity for all…This is the AFC’s promise to the nation.
