Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked government, Nicaragua is now again starting a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as dictatorships, and they are beginning to speak openly concerning it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and lots of nations were pouring aid into the relatively poor country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when stresses are beginning to rise and the outlook of democracy looks to be in trouble, several of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping completely any aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new business in the country.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and leader began talking about indiscretions happening in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly detested by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Swiftly the people started to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have thus begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and regulate the information leaving the nation. Altogether this, shared with the swiftly increasing poverty level of its residents, has made most to believe that fighting will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal about their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
