No Confidence Vote Likely To Trigger Early Election In Guyana

  • According to Fitch, Guyana will likely see a general election in Q119 after a successful no-confidence vote against the ruling A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) government in December 2018.
  • The 33-32 margin of the no-confidence vote will heighten political uncertainty in the coming weeks, as APNU has already challenged the vote.
  • The expectation is that the opposition People's Progressive Party (PPP) will be slight favorites if an early election takes place.
