Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a recent revolution and the removal of a wildly disliked government, Nicaragua is currently beginning a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can break into democratic countries in addition to tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise concerning it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and many countries were providing aid to the relatively improvised country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy seems to be in trouble, several of those same countries have begun scaling back or eliminating total aid to the nation, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being unfriendly regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The fragmentation of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began talking concerning the indiscretions in the system. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the people began to distrust the whole governmental system, and have now begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of eliminating democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are attempting to impede media access and control the information exiting the nation. Altogether this, combined with the rapidly growing poverty level of its citizens, has led most to believe that violence will break out in the nation preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly voiced about their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
