The multi-racial, anti-colonial People's Progressive Party (PPP) was broken up by the CIA and the British in the 1960s because the PPP was the first (elected) Communist Government in the Western Hemisphere.

The People's National Congress (PNC) was formed through the manipulation of the CIA and the British in order to keep the PPP out of power (which won every free and fair election). This led to the ethnic political politics that are still plaguing Guyana to this day.
