Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a new revolution and the dismissal of a widely unpopular government, Nicaragua is now again starting a fresh upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic nations in addition to dictatorships, and they are starting to make noise regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and several nations were providing aid to the relatively poor nation to keep its democracy alive. Now that stresses are starting to surface and the future of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, many of those same nations have started scaling back or stopping completely any aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new business in the nation.

The fragmentation of the country commenced in November 2008 following local election and leader started talking about indiscretions 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 impending 2011 race. Rapidly the population began to doubt the whole governmental structure, and have now started staging protests and growing rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being launched at the current government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and control the news leaving the country. All of this, paired with the quickly growing poverty level of its residents, has made many to think that violence will happen in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more vocal concerning their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
