Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been through a recent uprising and the removal of a widely disliked government, Nicaragua is now again starting a fresh upheaval. A country having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are starting to protest concerning it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and many countries were providing aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are starting to rise and the future of democracy looks to be in danger, several of those same countries have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the region.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 following local election and leader began speaking about indiscretions in the system. Shortly following 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 impending 2011 race. Quickly the people started to doubt the entire governmental organization, and have now begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are implication that they are trying to impede media access and control the information going out of the country. All of this, paired with the quickly increasing poverty level of its citizens, has led many to think that fighting will ensue in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more verbal about their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
