The United States expects the Surinamese elections to produce a clear and reliable result.
This is what US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in Washington on Wednesday during the presentation of a report on religious freedom.
The elections in Suriname took place over two weeks ago.
There is now an unofficial result, but the official result is delayed because the party of Desi Bouterse has asked for a recount of the votes of two polling stations.
Whether the recount will be made depends on the supervisors who deal with it. Bouterse is the big loser of the elections, and it is expected that any recount will not change that.
The elected parliamentarians are expected to meet for the first time on Monday, June 29. Then the chairman and vice-chairman will also be elected.
