Mega Combinatie (MC)
The Mega Combinatie (Mega Combination or MC) is a political party in Suriname.

The party was founded on July 5, 2008 and was a collection of the National Democratic Party (NDP), the Progressive Workers' and Farmers Union (PALU), New Suriname (NS), the Kerukunan Tulodo Pranatan Inggil (KTPI), Democratic National Platform 2000 (DNP 2000) and the Basic Party for Renewal and Democracy (BVD). Of these, only the NDP, PALU, NS, and KTPI remained in the coalition to contest the 2010 elections.

The board of the combination was formed by the Presidents Collective comprising:
- Desi Bouterse (NDP), Chairman
- Jim Hok (PALU), Secretary
- John Nasibdar (NS)
- Willy Soemita (KTPI)

The combination was formed with the aim to jointly participate in the parliamentary elections of 25 May 2010. In this election the Mega Combination achieved 40.22% of the votes and thus 23 of the 51 parliamentary seats (19 for the NDP, two for NS, one for the KTPI and also one for the PALU).

Desi Bouterse was nominated on behalf of the Mega Combination as a candidate for president of Suriname. The cooperation of the Mega Combination with A Combination of Ronnie Brunswick (7 seats) and Pertjajah Luhur Paul Somohardjo (6 seats) yielded a total of 36 seats and there are exactly two more than the requirement for direct election thirds majority in the National Assembly. Bouterse was thanks to this majority elected on July 19, 2010 President of Suriname. NB: After the election of President Bouterse of Suriname, his seat became available, Henk Ramnandanlal, vice president of the PALU, since 20 July 2010 won the seat giving PALU two seats in the National Assembly.
