Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a fresh upheaval and the removal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is at the present time starting a renewed upheaval. A country having just 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that dishonesty and greed can infiltrate democratic countries along with dictatorships, and they are beginning to make noise about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and many countries were pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate country to retain its democracy. Now that strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same countries have started scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, forcing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the region.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials started talking about indiscretions happening in the system. Shortly after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly detested by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the people began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have now begun staging protests and growing rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are attempting to impede media access and regulate the news exiting the country. Altogether this, shared with the quickly growing poverty level of its residents, has made most to believe that fighting will happen in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal concerning their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
