The Alliance for Change (AFC) is a political party in Guyana.

History[edit]

The party was established in 2005 by three MPs who left other parties; Raphael Trotman of the People's National Congress, Khemraj Ramjattan of the People's Progressive Party and Sheila Holder of the Working People's Alliance.[1] Trotman became the leader of the party.

In the 2006 elections the party received 8.1% of the vote, winning six seats. Their vote share increased to 10.3% in the 2011 elections, which saw the party win seven seats.

Prior to the 2015 elections the AFC formed a joint electoral list with the A Partnership for National Unity alliance. The combined list won 33 seats, allowing PNC/APNU leader David A. Granger to become President.
