According to ALLCITYCODES.COM, the area code of Guyana is +592. This code is used when making phone calls to Guyana from other countries. It is also used for international text messages sent to and from Guyana. The area code of Guyana is divided into four regions, each with its own unique two-digit prefix. These prefixes are used in combination with the seven-digit local numbers to make a nine-digit phone number. For example, if you wanted to call someone in Georgetown, the area code would be 21 followed by a seven-digit local number. Different areas may have different calling plans, so it’s important to check with your service provider before making an international call. In addition to providing access to landlines, the area code of Guyana can also be used for mobile phones. Mobile numbers start with a three-digit prefix followed by a six-digit number. For example, if you wanted to call someone in Georgetown on their mobile phone, the area code would be 614 followed by a six-digit local number. It’s important to note that some mobile networks require an additional two or three digits after the initial three digits of the prefix; again, it’s best to check with your service provider before making any international calls or sending texts from abroad. To make an international call from within Guyana, dial 00 followed by the country code and then the full nine- or 10 digit phone number you wish to reach; for example, 001 6151234567 for a call to Nashville in Tennessee (country 1 and city 615). When calling within Guyana itself there is no need for an area or country code – simply dial the seven or eight digit local number without any preceding zeros or symbols. Guyana is a parliamentary democracy based on the Westminster system. The head of state is the President, who is elected for a five-year term by the National Assembly. The Prime Minister is the head of government and is appointed by the President from among the members of Parliament. The National Assembly consists of 65 members, with 10 elected from each of Guyana’s 10 administrative regions. Elections are held every five years and all citizens over 18 are eligible to vote. The government has traditionally been dominated by two major political parties: the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) and the People’s National Congress (PNC). In recent years, other parties have emerged, making Guyana’s political landscape more competitive and allowing for greater representation in government.
