Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a recent upheaval and the dismissal of a widely disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently creating a renewed upheaval. A nation with only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as dictatorships, and they are starting to protest regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and many nations were offering aid to the fairly unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when strains are starting to surface and the prospect of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, many of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping total aid to the nation, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being unfriendly towards the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the country.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began talking concerning the irregularities happening in the organization. Soon following 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 impending 2011 race. Rapidly the population began to doubt the entire governmental organization, and have thus begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are implication that they are seeking to limit media access and regulate the news going out of the nation. All of this, paired with the swiftly increasing poverty level of its residents, has made several to think that fighting will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal about their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
