REPUBLIC DAY MESSAGE FROM THE ERCcelebrating our multi-ethnic identity

January 23 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The Ethnic Relations Commission, (ERC), extends warmest Republic Day greetings to all Guyanese on this important anniversary in our multi-ethnic society. The Commission reminds that in 2023 the rich cultural heritage of Guyana’s diverse people remains intact since an independent Guyana took the final step towards republicanism in 1970.

Thousands of Guyanese will join in the revelry of Mashramani or observe the Republic anniversary fraternizing with friends and family. The ERC therefore sees the many activities and observances as another solid example of citizens taking time out as one people to celebrate.

The Commission commends Guyanese for their efforts to respect the country’s ethnic diversity and continuing to contribute in spirit to attain togetherness. The task of the ERC is made easier as the body continuously seeks to “promote harmony and good relations” when national occasions are embraced by the people. Today, Guyanese are able again to bond freely and observe another important milestone in their country.

Happy Republic Day from the Ethnic Relations Commission!
