Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a fresh revolution and the dismissal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can break into democratic countries along with dictatorships, and they are starting to speak openly regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and many countries were providing aid to the fairly poor nation to retain its democracy. At this time when tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, many of those same countries have begun scaling back or abolishing completely any aid to the nation, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and officials started talking about misdeeds happening in the system. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the population started to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have thus begun performing protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and regulate the information exiting the nation. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly mounting poverty level of its citizens, has made many to think that fighting will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more verbal concerning their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
