United Republican Party (Guyana)

The United Republican Party (URP) is a political party in Guyana.


The URP was established in the United States by Vishnu Bandhu in March 1985, before being launched in Guyana in November 1987;[1] it was formally registered on 26 April 1988.[1] In 1990 it suffered a split when some members left to form the National Republican Party.[2] The party contested the 1992 general elections, but received just 0.4% of the vote and failed to win a seat.[3]

The URP did not contest any further elections until 2015, when, still led by Bandhu, it received just 432 votes (0.11%), again failing to win a seat.[4]
