Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a recent revolution and the dismissal of a widely unpopular rule, Nicaragua is now again starting a new upheaval. A country with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic countries in addition to tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and lots of countries were pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate country to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are beginning to surface and the future of democracy seems to be in danger, several of those same countries have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The fragmentation of the country began in November 2008 following local election and leader started speaking about indiscretions happening in the system. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the population began to doubt the whole governmental system, and have thus begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and regulate the news going out of the country. All of this, shared with the swiftly growing poverty level of its residents, has made several to think that fighting will happen in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal concerning their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
