Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a fresh revolution and the dismissal of a widely disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic countries along with dictatorships, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and lots of countries were offering aid to the fairly unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. At this point when strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy looks to be in trouble, several of those same countries have started scaling back or abolishing all aid to the country, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now hesitant to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The disintegration of the country started in November 2008 subsequent to local election and leader began speaking concerning the misdeeds happening in the system. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the population started to be suspicious of the entire governmental system, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are insinuations that they are seeking to restrict media access and control the information leaving the country. All of this, paired with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its citizens, has led most to believe that violence will ensue in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal concerning their disapproval with the status of the government in Nicaragua.
