Guyana has officially sworn in its newest President.
The country’s new leader, David Granger, was sworn in this week following his historic victory in last week’s general elections.
Granger led a coalition of the APNU (A Partnership for National Unity) and AFC (Alliance for Change) that ousted the ruling PPP/C government after 23 years in power.
“We the Guyanese people have seized the opportunity to vote for human safety, national unity and inclusionary democracy,” Granger said in his inaugural address.
Granger will lead a government that will include new Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo.
He is Guyana’s eighth President.
