The president, Donald Ramotar, has announced that general elections will be held, but deferred naming a date until early 2015.

After failing to mobilise mass support in the wake of his decision to prorogue parliament on November 10th, Mr Ramotar's announcement was not entirely unexpected. Although ostensibly he prorogued Guyana's 10th parliament as a way of initiating dialogue with the opposition while preserving the life of parliament, it is widely felt that the decision was a way of avoiding certain defeat via a no-confidence motion brought by the majority opposition. This would have triggered the immediate resignation of the government, the dissolution of the National Assembly and the holding of new elections within three months. Since the president's unprecedented (but constitutional) action, he has been severely criticised by members of the opposition, the local business community, religious leaders and civil society. Several international organisations-including the Organisation of American States (OAS) and the Commonwealth Secretariat-have offered assistance to broker a solution, but the opposition has remained resolute that there will be no dialogue with the Ramotar administration READ MORE >
