Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the removal of a wildly disliked government, Nicaragua is at the present time creating a renewed upheaval. A nation having only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and many nations were providing aid to the fairly improvised nation to keep its democracy alive. At this time when strains are beginning to surface and the future of democracy appears to be in danger, lots of those same nations have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the nation, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile towards the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began talking concerning the indiscretions happening in the organization. Soon 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. Rapidly the people began to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are seeking to limit media access and regulate the information exiting the nation. Altogether this, paired with the swiftly growing poverty level of its citizens, has made many to believe that fighting will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal concerning their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
