Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a fresh uprising and the removal of a wildly unpopular government, Nicaragua is currently beginning a new upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that dishonesty and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to protest about 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 pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, lots of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new companies in the country.

The fragmentation of the country commenced in November 2008 following local election and leader began speaking about misdeeds 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 try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the people started to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have thus begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being hurled at the current government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the news leaving the country. Altogether this, combined with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its inhabitants, has led most to think that fighting will happen in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more vocal about their anger with the status of the government in Nicaragua.
