A former executive member of the People's National Congress Reform, Trotman co-founded the Alliance For Change (AFC) in 2005 along with Khemraj Ramjattan and Sheila Holder. Officially launched on October 29, 2005, the AFC received 8.3% of the national vote and won 5 of the 65 seats in the August 2006 elections, becoming the third largest political party in Guyana.
