Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a new uprising and the removal of a wildly hated rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a new upheaval. A country with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic countries as well as dictatorships, and they are beginning to make noise about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and lots of countries were pouring aid into the fairly poor country to retain its democracy. At this point when strains are beginning to rise and the outlook of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, lots of those same countries have started scaling back or abolishing all aid to the country, forcing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new business in the region.

The fragmentation of the country began in November 2008 following local election and officials began speaking concerning the indiscretions in the organization. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the people started to distrust the entire governmental structure, and have now begun performing protests and growing rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the existing government, as are implication that they are attempting to limit media access and control the reports exiting the country. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly mounting poverty level of its inhabitants, has led many to think that fighting will happen in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal concerning their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
