    Election day Suriname is voting today in an athmosphere of unity in diversity. Desire Delano Bouterse the popular peoples choice President is ready for his second term. Bouterse earns great admiration and trust from all walks of life.

    After weeks of intensive campaigning the former Commander in Chief of the Suriname National Army is casting his vote. The National Democratic Party (NDP) of which Bouterse is the chairman is the only multi-ethnic party in Suriname, a country where different race cultures and religions are living peacefully together. It is expected that the "purple party" NDP will win the elections again. At the moment the votes are being counted. (tekst Dettje Halfway)
