Samuel Archibald Anthony Hinds (born 27 December 1943) is a Guyanese politician who has been Prime Minister of Guyana almost continuously since 1992.

He first became Prime Minister under Cheddi Jagan in 1992, following the October 1992 election, which was won by an alliance of the People's Progressive Party (PPP) and Hinds' group, Civic. When Jagan died in March 1997, Hinds became President himself, relinquishing his Prime Ministership, but later resigned in December of that year, in favour of Janet Jagan, Cheddi's widow; Jagan in turn re-appointed Hinds as Prime Minister.

Prior to this Hinds worked for Alcan, as the head of Chemical Engineering. By education, Hinds is a licensed and qualified Chemical Engineer.

In August 1999, Jagan decided to resign, and temporarily replaced Hinds with Bharrat Jagdeo; Jagdeo thus became President upon her resignation, and he reappointed Hinds as Prime Minister.

After the re-election of the government in the August 28, 2006 election, Hinds was sworn in as prime minister again in early September. [1]
