Introduction :

Election of Members of the National Assembly :

Article 60 (1) of the Constitution prescribes that “Election of members of the National Assembly shall be secret ballot. Article 60 (2) prescribes that “subject to the provisions of article 160(2), such number of members of the National Assembly as determined by the Assembly, shall be elected in accordance with the system of proportional representation as prescribed by article 160(1).

Qualification for Voting :

Subject to the provisions of article 159 of the Constitution, every person may vote at election if he/she is of the age of eighteen years or upwards and is either a citizen of Guyana or a Commonwealth citizen domiciled and resident in Guyana.

Times for Elections Article 60(2) :

Article 61 of the Constitution prescribes that an election of members of the National Assembly under Article 60(2) of the Constitution shall be held on such day within three months after every dissolution of Parliament, as the President shall appoint by proclamation.

Supervision of Elections :

Article 62 of the Constitution prescribes that Elections shall be independently supervised by the Elections Commission in accordance with the provisions of paragraphs (2) and (3) of Article 160.

Electoral System :

Elections are conducted according to the Constitutional provisions which are supplemented by the laws made by Parliament. The major laws among those are the Representation of the People Act (1964) which deals with all aspects of the conduct of elections and the National Registration Act (1967) which deals mainly with the preparation and revision of electoral rolls.

The current electoral system is the product of cross party agreement on constitutional reform as catered for by the Herdmanston Accord. This witnessed the relevant parties agreeing to a reformed system which includes an element of geographic and gender representation. Previously, only 53 of the 65 members of the National Assembly were elected directly while the remaining twelve were indirectly elected.

Under the current system which was adopted after the amending of the Constitution and the Representation of the People Act {Constitution (Amendment) Act No 3 of 2000 and Election Laws (Amendment) Act No. 15, 2000} in November, 2000, all members of the National Assembly are to be directly elected. Twenty five (25) to be elected from the ten (10) geographic constituencies and the remaining forty (40) elected from a national “top-up” list to guarantee a very high degree of proportionality. Any party contesting seats for the National Assembly must validly nominate candidates in six (6) of the geographic constituencies or for thirteen (13) of the twenty five (25) constituency seats. Furthermore, a third of the candidates validly nominated must be women.

On February 13, 2001, conscious of the need to ensure the constitutional requirement for proportionality, the National Assembly further amended the Representation of the People Act, Constitution (Amendment) Act No. 1, 2001 and Representation of the People (Amendment) Act 2001 to allow the National Assembly to have at least sixty five (65) members and allow GECOM to allocate “overhang seats”, if required. Overhang seats would be required if a Party wins a disproportional number of constituency seats thereby giving it an advantage over other parties. Under these circumstances, GECOM would award overhang seats to the national top up to ensure that the advantage is removed.
