Free Indian Party and Elderly Union

The Free Indian Party and Elderly Union (in Dutch: Vrije Indische Partij en Ouderenunie) is a political alliance that participated the elections of 2003. It consisted out of the Free Indian Party (VIP) and the Elderly Union. The VIP was a political party for people from the Dutch former colonies, Dutch East India and Suriname, that never got a seat in the parliament. The elderly one issue parties, General Elderly Alliance and Union 55+ were very successful in the 1990s, gaining many seats, but after scandals, the elderly lost the confidence among their voters. VIP and old aged merged for the elections of 2003.
