Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a wildly unpopular government, Nicaragua is currently beginning a fresh upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and many countries were offering aid to the relatively poor nation to retain its democracy. At this point when strains are beginning to rise and the future of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, many of those same countries have started cutting back or eliminating all aid to the nation, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new business in the country.

The disintegration of the nation started in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began speaking about irregularities happening in the organization. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Swiftly the people began to be suspicious of the whole governmental structure, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are implication that they are seeking to impede media access and control the reports exiting the nation. Altogether this, paired with the swiftly mounting poverty level of its inhabitants, has led many to feel certain that violence will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal concerning their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
