Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a fresh revolution and the removal of a widely hated government, Nicaragua is currently starting a fresh upheaval. A country with only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can break into democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are starting to protest regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and several nations were pouring aid into the fairly unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. Now that tensions are starting to rise and the outlook of democracy seems to be in trouble, several of those same nations have started cutting back or eliminating completely any aid to the country, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the nation.

The destruction of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials started speaking about irregularities going on in the system. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the people started to distrust the whole governmental organization, and have thus begun performing protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the reports going out of the country. All of this, paired with the swiftly growing poverty level of its inhabitants, has made most to believe that violence will break out in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more voiced concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
