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 rule through a succession of nominally civilian administrations until 1987, when international pressure finally forced a democratic election. In 1990, the military overthrew the civilian government, but a democratically elected government returned to power in 1991.
