Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been through a fresh uprising and the removal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a new upheaval. A country with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can break into democratic countries in addition to dictatorships, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and lots of countries were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate country to retain its democracy. At this time when strains are beginning to surface and the prospect of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, several of those same countries have started cutting back or stopping completely any aid to the country, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The disintegration of the country started in November 2008 following local election and leader began talking concerning the misdeeds happening in the system. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly detested by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the future 2011 race. Rapidly the population began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of eliminating democratic freedoms are being launched at the present government, as are implication that they are seeking to restrict media access and regulate the reports leaving the country. Altogether this, combined with the swiftly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to think that violence will break out in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
