Background: First explored by the Spaniards in the 16th century and then settled by the English in the mid-17th century , Suriname became a Dutch colony in 1667. With the abolition of slavery in 1863 , workers were brought in from India and Java. Independence from the Netherlands was granted in 1975. Five years later the civilian government was replaced by a military regime that soon declared a socialist republic. It continued to exert control through a succession of nominally civilian administrations until 1987 , when international pressure finally forced a democratic election. In 1990 , the military overthrew the civilian leadership , but a democratically elected government - a four-party New Front coalition - returned to power in 1991 and has ruled since; the coalition expanded to eight parties in 2005.
