Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a fresh revolution and the dismissal of a wildly hated rule, Nicaragua is now again starting a new upheaval. A nation with only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that corruption and greed can infiltrate democratic nations as well as dictatorships, and they are starting to make noise about 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 providing aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. Now that tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in danger, several of those same nations have started cutting back or abolishing all aid to the nation, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the region.

The fragmentation of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began speaking concerning the indiscretions in the organization. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the population started to be suspicious of the entire governmental system, and have thus begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and regulate the news exiting the nation. Altogether this, shared with the swiftly increasing poverty level of its residents, has led many to think that fighting will ensue in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more voiced about their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
