Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a wildly unpopular rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations in addition to dictatorships, and they are starting to make noise about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and lots of nations were providing aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. Now that strains are starting to increase and the prospect of democracy looks to be in danger, many of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping total aid to the nation, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be hesitant to invest in any new companies in the country.

The disintegration of the nation started in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began talking concerning the indiscretions in the system. Shortly after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the future 2011 race. Swiftly the people began to distrust the whole governmental organization, and have thus started performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being launched at the present government, as are insinuations that they are trying to restrict media access and control the news leaving the nation. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its residents, has made most to feel certain that violence will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal about their anger with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
