Guyanese President Calls Elections

The people of Guyana are to go to the polls on November 28.

The announcement was made on Sunday evening by President Bharrat (in photo) Jagdeo’s office.

Political parties have six weeks to field candidates for the 65-seat Parliament which was dissolved last month.

A seven-party opposition coalition led by retired army commander David Granger is seeking to unseat Mr. Jagdeo’s People’s Progressive Party, which has been in power since 1992.

Mr. Jagdeo is leaving office because he has served the two-term maximum set by Guyana’s constitution.
