Guyana is a Westminster type parliamentary system. Its constitution, even though a convoluted mess of indeterminate clauses, would serve well were we a homogeneous society. We are however an ethnically bifurcated society with our ethnic populations being almost evenly matched

 

The colonial crucible played on ethnic differences and origins to create an adversarial culture between the two groups.  Add to that we are a winner takes all majoritarian, closet list electoral system. Politics is therefore a zero sum game ( precisely the game of chicken vs prisoners dilemma as I stated on another post).

 

Winning the state becomes an ethnic prize. Add to that our constitution has a peculiar feature ( placed there to preserve the ethnic based competition) it does not allow for after the fact coalitions. 

 

We are a trapped society. Our ethnic differences and political organization makes us eternally more concerned with nepotism and conserving ethnic pride than community. Our salvation lies in abandoning our constitution and creating a bicameral, non territorial federal system to devolve power away from the center to local constituencies.

 

We may also need to reform our electoral system to a multi vote system where the individual votes for candidates preferentially and not by one vote. This would prevent political parties from overloading the system and coercing rational choice over ethnic preference   No other arrangement can make us whole except that the individual sovereignty is secure and not tied to ethnic pride or preserves.

Actually Guyana is in the Category of  Presidential System of Government. Wiki says it's Presidential Republic.[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidential_system]

There are different rules to remove the President . What i am trying to get at, there seems to be some conflict with  the amendment  (6) and (7) of Article 106 of the Constitution. I am aware it was construed to cut Presidential Powers, there are grey areas.

Guyana is not technically a republic. That is a label attached to it with practically no meaning in term of what constitute true republicanism. A republic has direct representatives. Guyana is essentially a one constituency system where we elect and executive who per a previously declared list select the legislators. 

Rules for removing the president are not particular to any form of government. Each system has a definite process. 

At this point of my life I am beyond being advised on the forms of government. That was part of my formal training eons ago and since then have had my fill on what each form entails.

I actually wrote a four part series published by the Guyana Journal on comparative constitutions and forms of government and what I think is best for us some 20 years ago. It had since morphed to a book which I forgot about but which with a bit of updating is almost ready for publishing.
