We are 8 months on since an NCV and in the annals of the Westminster type constitution.

Guyana 1980 Constitution is not wholly a Westminster Type.

There is a President the supreme executive authority, there are methods stated in the Constitutions  for removal, not the botched amendments of Article 106 by inserting (6) and (7)

It is a a Westminster type. It is so defined by any scholarly commentary. No constitution on the planet are the same. Indian has a hybrid federal, parliamentary model as does Canada. We are more like most commonwealth type, unicameral and majoritarian. We do not have a queen who is merely ceremonial. Like all Westminster models the prime minister is supreme

ONLY the scaffolding of the Guyana Constitution is "Westminister" dating back to FPTP in colonial times

the disfiguring under Burnham was completed in 1980

only a determined jackass or political opportunist cannot 'see'

like you . . . so eager to show you 'smart' that you end up posting self-undermining crap like here:

"Like all Westminster models the prime minister is supreme."

smfh

It is crap like FPTP defines the  Westminster type that unfrocks your ignorance. We have many kinds of electoral system in Westminister systems. We have a majoritarian, unicameral system with de facto one constituency that consolidates centralized authority in the person of one individual. There is no separation of the legislature from the PM/President. That does not even speak to the rules of order we operate operate under in parliament which was borrowed whole cloth from the empire. Take a walk you moron,

the rules of order and other procedural stuff are embroidery and tradition

the guts of the GY Constitution was taken out and replaced by Burnham

that's why there are so many dead and loose ends

but at the end of the day, you remain a very light thinker

prone to posting stupid, self-undermining crap like below:

"Like all Westminster models the prime minister is supreme."

uh huh
