Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a recent upheaval and the dismissal of a widely hated government, Nicaragua is currently starting a renewed upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic nations as well as tyrannies, and they are starting to make noise regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and many nations were pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. At this point when tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy looks to be in danger, several of those same nations have begun scaling back or stopping completely any aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly unfriendly concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new business in the region.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began speaking about misdeeds going on in the system. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Swiftly the people began to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have thus started performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Charges of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to limit media access and control the information leaving the nation. All of this, combined with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has led many to think that fighting will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly vocal concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
