The Guyana Elections Commission (Gecom) has announced that eight political parties will contest the general and regional elections on May 11th.

The eight parties include the incumbent People's Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), which has been in power for nearly 23 years, and a newly-formed coalition, A Partnership for National Unit and Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC). The latter two parties merged two months ago as a strategic alliance to unseat the PPP/C government, whose vulnerability-which was first detected in its failure to secure a majority at the 2011 general elections-led to its premature end, with the dissolution of the National Assembly on February 28th. In declaring his readiness for the polls, the chairman of Gecom, Steve Surujbally, disclosed that all polling stations (of which there will be over 2,200) have been finalised and the staff is being re-trained in an effort to ensure a smooth operation on election day. Several local and overseas observers will monitor the vote, including the Carter Centre, a non-governmental organisation, and the Organisation of American States (OAS), both of which have already fielded advanced teams.
