By Bert Wilkinson, Associated Press, Friday 26 May 2000, 10:41 PM ET PARAMARIBO, Suriname (AP)—Voters rejected the ambitious development plans of President Jules Wijdenbosch and all but handed control of the National Assembly to the labor-backed opposition, according to election returns Friday.
With 78 percent of votes from Thursday's election counted, the New Front, which includes labor unions and has the support of former President Ronald Venetiaan, had a projected 33 seats in the 51-seat National Assembly—one shy of the two-thirds majority needed to elect a president.
The 60-year-old president called elections a year early to quell street protests demanding his resignation over the struggling economy, with inflation at 70 percent a year, and unemployment at 20 percent.
