Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a widely hated government, Nicaragua is at the present time creating a fresh upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic countries as well as tyrannies, and they are starting to speak openly about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and many countries were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. Now that strains are starting to rise and the future of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, several of those same countries have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the nation, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the country.

The fragmentation of the nation started in November 2008 following local election and leader started speaking concerning the misdeeds in the system. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Swiftly the people began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have thus begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of eliminating democratic freedoms are being hurled at the current government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and regulate the news leaving the nation. All of this, paired with the rapidly growing poverty level of its inhabitants, has led several to think that violence will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal concerning their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
