Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a fresh uprising and the removal of a widely unpopular rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a new upheaval. A country having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can infiltrate democratic countries in addition to 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 many countries were providing aid to the fairly poor nation to keep its democracy alive. At this point when tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same countries have started cutting back or eliminating all aid to the country, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The fragmentation of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials started talking about indiscretions happening in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the people started to distrust the whole governmental system, and have now begun performing protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the existing government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the news leaving the country. Altogether this, combined with the quickly growing poverty level of its residents, has made many to think that fighting will break out in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
