Abstract On December 11th 2006, direct elections of regional heads were held in Aceh. Almost two years after the devastating tsunami and 16 months after the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in Helsinki, the elections have improved the chances for a lasting peace between the Indonesian government and the GAM (Gerakan Aceh Merdeka – Free Aceh Movement). In particular at the provincial level, members of the movement have succeeded. National political parties and the government in Jakarta suffered defeat. Moreover, the results will likely have an impact upon the balance of power within the GAM. The Sweden-based older generation probably will now have less influence on the organization.
