Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a new uprising and the removal of a wildly unpopular rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a renewed upheaval. A country with just 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are starting to make noise about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and lots of nations were pouring aid into the fairly improvised country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when stresses are starting to rise and the outlook of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, several of those same nations have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new companies in the country.

The disintegration of the country commenced in November 2008 following local election and officials began talking concerning the indiscretions in the organization. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the people started to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have thus started performing protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the news exiting the country. All of this, combined with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has made most to think that violence will happen in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal about their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
