Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a widely disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently beginning a fresh upheaval. A country having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are starting to make noise regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and lots of nations were providing aid to the relatively poor country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when stresses are starting to increase and the prospect of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, several of those same nations have started scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the country.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began talking concerning the indiscretions happening in the organization. Almost immediately after 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 upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the people started to doubt the whole governmental system, and have now started staging protests and growing rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are insinuations that they are seeking to limit media access and regulate the news exiting the country. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly growing poverty level of its inhabitants, has led most to think that fighting will happen in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly vocal regarding their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
