Good and Green Guyana (GGG) was a political party in Guyana.

History[edit]

The party was established in 1994 by former Prime Minister Hamilton Green after he was expelled from the People's National Congress,[1] and was initially named the Forum for Democracy,[2] before becoming Good and Green Georgetown. The 1994 Georgetown City Council elections saw GGG defeat the PNC and PPP, allowing Green to become mayor.[3]

In 1995 the party was renamed Good and Green Guyana.[1] In the 1997 general elections it received only 0.4% of the vote and failed to win a seat.[4] It did not contest any further elections.[5]
